automatically get mail when mail starts?

  1. Anybody know if there’s a way to have Mail automatically check for new
    mail when I open it? I know about the preferences setting for how often
    to check for new mail, but I don’t see an option for what I want.

  2. if is set to automatically check for mail periodically, it
    should automatically check for mail upon launch.

    In the account options panel, make sure that the appropriate check box
    is checked.

  3. If that doesn't work for Chuck, isn't Mail apple-scriptable?

    If you have it set that way, but have switched to "work offline"
    before you quit last time, it may start back up in "work offline" mode.

    Let's test that theory out.

    Sure enough.
