Selecting multiple items in Junk folder
Older version allows you to select multiple items, even all items, in Junk and report them as phishing scams. This beta does not and that is a big fail for me.
Update 9/19/2017: You can now select and deselect multiple items, then mark as phishing or block. Thanks for using the Outlook.com beta!
It is possible to report scams (phishing) in the new version. It is just not so evident, since you have to go to the menu "not spam" (the exact name in English is unknown to me, as I have the language Spanish, where it is called "correo deseado". Anyway, in the "not spam" dropdown, there is menu called phishing, where you can report the scams.
I don't like that I can't select all and block email addresses in Junk folder. I have to go to each mail to block their address.
Not being able to block multiple emails in the junk folder is alone enough of a reason to not use the Beta version of this.
Agree. I, too, want to see the Report Phishing Scam option returned. AND want the ability to uncheck multiples after Selecting All within Junk folder.
Need to be able to select multiple items and delete junk mail, flag phishing scams, and move items out of junk mail. Having to click one message at a time is not going to work.

This is definitely an issue for me, as I get a lot of unwanted junk email and in the junk folder, I cannot select all and block them. I have to go through multiple emails to block them.
Agree, or selecte several en MOVE themto INbox..
previous version allows selection ( i.e. select all) off multiple emails to be block all at once
I used to be able to select multiple emails from the Junk folder (I whitelist my recipients) then select and drag them to the Inbox. The new beta interface does not permit me to do that using Safari version 11.
I would like also like to see the ability to block emails that come to my Junk box and I want to chose multiple emails, not one at a time.

I actually thought you cared about scams. I felt safer if I told someone about them. I guess you don't care if I get a virus or
loose the little income I'm trying to live on.

I agree with these, they are why I came here to give feedback.
Need to select multiple items, even all items, in Junk and report them as phishing scams.
option to block after checking all needs to be brought back.
need a "REPORT" phishing scam, my friend's been hacked, or just report option under delete.
I agree with John Dwayne; option to block after checking all needs to be brought back.
Definitely need a "REPORT" phishing scam, my friend's been hacked, or just report option under delete.
Although there is the option to "check all", attempting to UNcheck selected items does not work as it does with the non-beta version of Outlook.com. Please adjust the setting so items can be unchecked.
In the new beta, you can no longer click on all the remaining Junk Email (after deleting the ones that are Junk) and click Not Junk. You have to click on All, then unclick All, and then click Not Junk. Unnecessary extra step. Please bring back the old way.
Not seeing how to select a few emails in order to multiple delete

For those of us with the highest filter, make it easy to delete or block mail in the junk folder.

cant purge my unwanted emails now with this Beta

I have to block email addresses individually in the beta. Please allow me to block all selected email addresses at once, as was possible in the previous version of Outlook. Thank you.
