Option to fetch mails immediately gone?

Wasn’t there a 'refresh' button next to fetch folders to pick up mails immediately from external accounts? 🤔 Seems like this option is gone since there is now the three dots menu (which doesn’t contain 'fetch now').
Am I missing something?

I don't remember any explicit fetch button. I always clicked a folder to initiate a fetch in the main mail window.

Clicking a top level folder (e.g., inbox) will cause a fetch of all of the Mail Fetch entries selected for every 5 minutes.

For folders associated with Mail Fetch entries to be fetched only when refreshed then you have to click its associated folder.

This blog post from 2014 might explain a little though not all of it is relevant now.

Scroll down to "Simplifying Pop Link retrieval".

Thanks xyzzy and gj15!

Ah, I see – I just have to click a folder to fetch external POP links. Strange, I could swear this didn’t work for me earlier this day, but right now it’s all fine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
