force update smart folders in mail?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014

i have a smart mailbox in mail that i'm trying to use to keep the dock icon updated for unread mail items to one of my three mail accounts. i've succeeded in making a smart folder to do this but the only problem is it doesn't auto-update. if i click on the smart folder its listing with update with the number of unread messages in the blue circle and my dock icon will also update but this is a bit pointless if it won't do it automatically.

is there anyway to force the smart folder to update? i believe this is called live updating in itunes but there's no option for it in mail.
