You cannot do it now.

The feature to delete emails directly from the desktop notification is no longer available in Outlook 2016.

Hi,

you can try and set the outlook.exe compatibility mode to Win 7:

  • Right Click the outlook.exe file;
  • troubleshoot compatibility;
  • choose troubleshoot program;
  • check: 'The program worked in earlier versions of Windows';
  • select the last working Windows version(Windows 7);
  • select 'Test the program';
  • click 'Next';
  • restart Outlook.

You should now be able to delete incoming mails using the notification again.

Cheers
I generally find that users get tired of the notifications in the Action Center and turn them off:
