Make contact updates immediate
When I add contacts to a group they should be available immediately when used in a new or forwarded email. Changes to contacts should also be immediate. I have added new contacts to a list, but they do not appear when I use that list.

I concur wholeheartedly and have further observations. If you wait long enough, as in days, the new list or newly added members to an existing list do appear. There is absolutely no reason that that cannot be immediate on the computer from which the changes or additions were made. If you need to synchronize a backend database before those changes are available from other computers I might log into, I could buy that. Maybe overnight worst possible case.
The funny thing is, this behavior happened and then for a while it did not! I thought, hey they fixed it. But just about a week ago I had cause to tweak a list and create a new one, and it took several days before the changes were available on that same computer. I have tried the whole chain of restart this restart that and nothing helped. It is like you resurrected a bug. Or poor architecture.
I have come sooooo close to migrating these functions to one of my gmail accounts, if you want me to stay and be inundated with all those ads, then fix this once and for all.
