Bulk delete in OWA



  • Came upon a different issue using OWA.. User has emails back to 2011, which they are okay to delete.

    SHIFT - Select First and Last of 2011 does not select all of those emails. you have to basically list a page at a time to select them, and if you 'miss click' you have to start over again.

    Deleting via Outlook was a pretty simple task - OWA - not so much. And what about Archiving? while email from 2011 is not likely to be needed, there are some that do need mail back to the beginning of time. - AH ,yes. I need to look more into the back end, and archiving. Right now, the user would like to be able to send/receive email... she hit the 50GB limit.

    OWA sucks big ass donkey balls for anything beyond basic use.

    I completely disagree. Outlook works quite well for the tasks I need to perform and OWA does not.

    Bulk deletes do work better in Outlook. But it requires much more support. For the tasks I need to do, OWA does it better and requires far less babysitting.

    Bulk anything works better in Outlook. So does Search. If all you want is basic read and respond, then OWA is a great solution.

    Search on OWA is really good for me. Maybe it has improved more recently?

    That would be an incorrect assumption. Search is horrible beyond basic searching. I often perform a search of "last week" or "some date range" in a subset of folders excluding many folders. You cannot do this in OWA.

    If you just want to type a word or name and find it, yeah that works great, but is also extremely basic.

    OWA is a very good basic email client. nothing more.

    Edit: I use it all day. but I also have outlook running in a Windows 10 VM that I use to handle these issues.
