Am I really the only one missing that sweep functionality? It's hard to find on mobile anyway, but very, very, useful while cleaning up all those newsletters etcetera.
Thanks for your feedback. This is in our future planning.

Improve or Ditch outlook
In the 1000's of subscriptions, there are 5 from the same company 'name', but 5 from different junk/spam mail addresses. Please allow us to somehow delete more than 1 e-mail subscription at a time!

First of all, I love this beta version ergonomics and user interface experience. Thank you for the hard work that has been put there!
I wished you included a visible option to filter, select all and delete mails from unwanted senders - it would help me greatly to delete the thousands of newsletters mails I hardly read and kept on bulking my inbox anf spam folders.
Or even more powerfully, to add a cleaning wizzard, which suggests to delete some unread mails from specific newsletters or guides us in a cleaning process.

Please plan faster - that was a year ago. I have over a dozen pages of "Subscriptions" that I did not sign up for and refuse to be deleted.
Make it so we can click a sender and delete all message that person has ever sent. And maybe block all future messages to. Spam folders are getting crazy with the same people and no matter how many times I “unsubscribe” it never works. This is a must have for such a well known email provider

I'll second sweep!
Select all email from 1 sender and sort by all emails regardless of the date. Select all option, delete or move to folder.

We simply must have sweep functionality in mobile. To not include this feature that has been around for eons would be a HUGE miss for Outlook. We really cannot understand why the VOP has not been listened to, other than the company just doesn't care. That's the impression given.
It's the main reason I decided to go with outlook. The sweep feature makes managing emails so much easier!!!!

Wow. You cut me off with a full mailbox and took away the sweep feature.

This has been posted twice and was replied to by the team saying it was in the works but with no timeline indicated. There really needs to be the option to adjust sweep and rules options from a cellphone since the app is useless. I even tried requesting the desktop version as I don't want to have to go up to my husband's computer every time I need to do this. Unfortunately even in desktop mode I couldn't get it to work. When I click on the drop down box in the sweep popup window it resets so I can't get it off the deleted folder option. You know, Microsoft, a lot of people these days do not have computers, and they need to be able to do all these things from their cell phones. Apps should have all the same features as a desktop site. If this is in the works, what century do you plan to release it in?

No I am missing sweep too. Overall my outlook email is not working properly.
