     Check all folders no.  Right click on any folder, select properties, put 
a checkmark in "Check this folder for new messages."

     And since people have talked about it even though I don't personally use 
it I decided to go poking around.  Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Advanced 
Configuration (Config Editor) -> search for "check" and there's an option, set 
to false by default, mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new.  I presume setting 
it true would have the desired results.
