Refresh Button On Desktop Client

by StHapns247 / February 21, 2012 5:47 AM PST


I just started using the Windows Live Mail desktop client.

My question is this: Is there a "refresh" option for the e-mail pane? I typically use the Unread Mail feature and mark my e-mails as read as I read them. With the web interface it automatically removes the read e-mails form the unread e-mail view, but with the client it does not. They stay there until I change the folder I am look in.

I have it set to hide my read mail messages, but this doesn't seem to update dynamically.

So is there a refresh button? I can't seem to find one, but google searches seem to reference one that does not appear to exist.
