Yes it's the default behavior but as you have mentioned it only does so after a few seconds. I'm assuming the OP has never waited for the auto check feature to start and has always pressed the Get Mail button.

If the OP wants to check mail immediately when starting up then he can try using Thunderbird instead. It's one of the things I've always like about Thunderbird versus Mac Mail. Thunderbird is from the makers of Firefox.
