Widget contains top bar with following clickable elements:

Buttons may be hidden as desired, set this in Widget Configuration.

Top bar

Additionally, widget's top bar shows number of messages displayed, and last time when all folders were successfully synchronized with server. This time reflects time when displayed folders were updated either from widget, or other way (for example from opened ProfiMail).
