When in the unread filter, the message is not 'cleaned up' after marking it read.
In Airmail 3 you can use a filter to see only the unread messages. Unfortunately, when you mark a message as read (I do this manually), the message does not disappear from the list.
I basically use the unread filter as an inbox zero view. Since I use the message links in other applications, I cannot archive an e-mail since this breaks the links. So I leave everything in my inbox, which is actually my archive now. So I need another view as my "inbox", which is the view with the unread messages. I will only mark messages as read if I have acted upon them. But the list is not updated once you mark a message as read.
As a workaround I have created a shortcut in KeyboardMaestro that deselects the filter and reselect it, so that the view is refreshed.

please describe what should be the desidered behaviour
Still not fixed....I am using exchange so could be due to the lag there. The way Outlook manages exchange is 1000^10000x better than Airmail.

I second this idea. Being a long time Sparrow user, I miss this every day.
Their implementation was wonderful:
- Open inbox.
- Add the “Unread Messages” filter.
- Click an email, read it.
- Scroll/pull down to refresh view.
- Message is gone.
