mail from outlook

I am using outlook as my default mail editor. The old "express" used to download mail as soon as I opened it. However outlook waits until requested. Does anyone know of a shortcut to get outlook to download mail as default when opened?

Tools>options>mail delivery lets you choose the time until Outlook checks for mail without you hitting the send/receive key. I don't know if there's a way of amending the initial check as I have this set at every 10 minutes, but if I open my inbox and do nothing, it will invariably check for mail by itself within the first minute.

As the last response plus also in the options there is a box to tick for "check for mail on opening" or similar words. Check that then as soon as Outlook Express opens it will check for and send and recieved mail.
