Why is Outlook 2013 not syncing changes?

view story

http://hardforum.com – I'm connecting my Outlook.com account to a couple Outlook 2013 instances I have, as well as activesync on my android. My question is, why don't changes instantly sync when I delete, move, or mark an email as read? On my old mail server, I used IMAP idle and it instantly synced changes. This seems to not sync and force me to hit F9 to refresh. Is the issue with Outlook 2013 or Outlook.com? My phone seems to be slightly more reliable at syncing changes but not 100%. Thanks. (Hardware)
