Find all emails from a sender
I frequently get multiple emails from a sender in one day or daily emails from a sender. In the previous version, I could hover over the first line of an email in the Inbox and a context menu would appear. Then I could select "find" and handle all emails from that sender from the results screen. I don't see how to do that in the beta.
I'll probably have to leave the beta version because I can't do this type of "find".
Thank you for your feedback! This feature is planned and will come to the beta in a future update. We will reply back when it is available.
Yes, this is also a very big problem for me. I depend on having this feature. I see this problem was known about over 3 years ago and to date nothing has been done....Outlook is useless!
Please re-allow users to right click on an email and select the "find all emails from sender" in one's inbox. the feature is available in the junk email folder. but I cannot "find all emails from this sender" in my inbox. if it is available in one box, should it not be available in all?

I would like to search emails by selecting one from the same sender
I love how companies in the web 2.0 or 3.0 era REMOVE useful features to fit some arbitrary aesthetic for their branding, instead of actually making a product with is useful for their customers.
It's been two years and this is already available in your main outlook program. What's the hold up?
OH MY GOD!!! This new search SUCKS!! I use to be able to right click on an email and find all of the email like that one. Now I type it into the search bar and I get all kinds of things not just the key words I searched for. This SUCKS!! I just want to click on an email, find all of them and delete those. I type in Apple Card because I have hundreds of them and I get a result of 5 with JCPenney,, Kohls, Victoria Secret. WTF? I just want Apple Card. I'm so irritated with this email service that I'm done with it. And to top it off I keep getting solicited from women looking for a F*** Buddy. Why is this not being sent to spam. I hate this new email format.
I used to be able to "find all" by hovering over an email address, why has this function gone? This made it easier to detect and delete duplicate junk emails and considering I get so much junk (and blocking/reporting seems to achieve absolutely nothing) I wish this function would return please
I have over 22k emails because deleting emails is a PITA in the new version of Outlook. What ever happened to the ability to select All emails from a particular sender - at the very least. Clicking a bubble and having to select each individual email to delete is not efficient. I want to highlight or select many emails at once to delete, not have to click each one.
I am no longer able to pause the cursor over a persons name then click on the "find mail" button (which no longer exists) to locate mail from that person. It seems that everytime Microsoft changes outlook/hotmail they make it less user friendly.

The search box doesn't work properly ! The older version of Outlook was BETTER than this one !! I used to be able to view ALL emails from one sender by putting my mouse on the sender's email and clicking on "Find Mail" and WALLAHH !! - ALL the email from that one sender would pop up on a separate page. I used this to help me delete similar emails quicker ! I really need this feature back ASAP !! The search box pops up other emails that I DON'T EVEN WANT !! Who's the Idiot that designed these features !! It worked perfect before & now it's *+?@%**/ up !! does anybody even read any of this feedback ?? This is the 2nd time I've written about this !!

bring back the option to auto-delete or autoarchive from a specific folder on outlook for web.
Also bring back the option to pull up all emails by sender.
Where is the "Find email from this sender" option in the email context menu? Could you just turn back on the old version?
Byron Jones commented
When sorting mail by sender, there should be a check circle to select all from that sender, next to the sender name above the group. Would make it easier to select for move or deletion.
I miss the right-click option on email where I can do an easy filter on a particular message by using the "find related" then by "sender" or "subject". Please bring it back!!!

P.S. I realize we can now highlight a sender's address in the Outlook.com details pane and click Show More to see some or all of their past emails. However, this new feature requires more clicks (buried more deeply). Furthermore, the resulting list lacks interactive features such as select all, so this is not an adequate replacement for hover or right-click Find All. Thanks for listening to our feedback.
Mike Glenn commented
I actually love the new Outlook.com, but, for me, the lack of hover or right-click over sender to Find All was the biggest loss in the transition. Why has it been more than 18 months and still we don't have this feature back or any status update? This is apparently not an internal priority, but it's very important for users.

WHY. did you remove the Find All command from the pop-up (right-click) menu?!?!?!? Was it really a big overhead to maintain? That feature is so useful. NO ONE wants to select a sender, which is actually difficult to do since hovering doesn't bring up the text selection tool, and then copy, and then paste. PUT THE COMMAND BACK on the right-click menu!!!!
Please bring back this feature:
When I highlight one email message, and right mouse click on it, the new menu should have: " Search all messages from this sender". This handy feature used to be there in the older version, and it was very handy to clean up junk/unwanted emails. Then in the new window, I can quickly delete them in bulk.
Without this feature I have to go one by one to delete them, and it is time consuming, so my email size is growing up very rapidly...

Please return the feature that allows you to pull up all emails from a particular sender and delete individually or all together. Current method wastes a lot of time
Find senders emails.
Earlier it was possible to have the pointer over the sender. You could right click and it was possible to chose "find all emails from that sender.
Where did this useful tool go?
So much junk! Pls maket it easier to take away junk!
Make it possible to choose a couple of emails end then find all emails from those senders!
Then make it possible to junk-label those senders
