Delete mail by sender
I have eleven thousand plus emails on my page. I would love to be able to search for one of the stupid things I'm subscribed to and delete every single email they have ever sent me. (Not just the first 25 that are selected when you search and then hit select all) like Safeway for instance who I want to receive emails from but every email prior to last week they've ever sent me is completely useless to me I don't need ones from January still in my box and they are still in my inbox right now. Lol. If I could have a like mass delete form or something where I can specify to move everything from a certain sender sent privous to a specific date... To trash And then maybe a preview of the emails that will be moved just to make sure before deleting
We select only 25 mails at a time in the search screen by default but you can always scroll down to fetch more mail and then select them all again by tapping the “select all tick” icon on the top left twice.
Also you can filter out all the mail from a particular sender by using the “from:” keyword in search. For example you could put “from: Safeway” to search for all mail from Safeway.
To set up advanced rules, you will need to access Outlook from a desktop browser.
Hope this helps.
It would be good that we can like delete all messages from one sender at once ( like from specific advertistments) so it would be easier to clear our inboxes and junk.

Used to be able to click on an email and delete everything from that sender in your inbox. Now have to do it manually page by page which takes too long. For example you could click on a message from Facebook and say delete all from this sender in the inbox. Can you bring that back please. I get over 300 messages a day so too long deleting and end up missing important emails cuz not found it amongst the rabble.
