Custom Search Folders not refreshing/updating automatically

I created 5 custom search folders which display emails sent/received by me on each of the working days of the previous week. I used query builder to set the criteria up. The criteria for the folder named "Monday Last Week" used these criteria:

.AND (
. OR (
. To contains [my name]
. From contains [my name]
. CC contains [my name]
. Bcc contains [my name]
. )
. OR (
. Sent on Monday Last Week
. Received on Monday Last Week
. )
.)


When I created them, they showed exactly what I expected. But the following week -- when they should've started showing new results -- they continued showing the same results as they had when I first created them. I couldn't find any way to refresh/update the results. The only way I could find to get the results to update was to use the customise search folder option and then hit OK which I guess causes Outlook to re-run the query.

My question is, is there a way to get Outlook to update/refresh the results periodically if not automatically when I open the folder?

Failing that, is there a way through VBA that I can create an updater macro that runs through those 5 folders and refreshes them either when they are opened or periodically (e.g. at the beginning of each week).
