Mailbird uses Push technology for your inbox.
What this means is that when a new email is received by your email server, Mailbird inbox will automatically update itself. The email will also be visible in Mailbird (give or take a few seconds delay).
This makes sure that you will get your message immediately. But what about the other folder beside Inbox? For all other folders, Mailbird will refresh them every 60 minutes.
If there's an error, you can refresh your Inbox and other folders manually from Mailbird. There are 2 ways to do this.
- Press F5 on your keyboard
- Click on any folder that you want to refresh
You'll see this blue bar at the top of the email list pane, indicating that Mailbird is refreshing the viewed folder
If for some reason you can't see the blue bar, this is usually because it takes so fast to refresh your server that Mailbird does not display the blue bar.
