Prevent Mail.app from Checking Mail At Start-Up

Is there a way to prevent the Mail.app from checking mail immediately after it starts-up, or at least have it prompt for a password first?

"Yes just remove the password from the account(s) and it will prompt for a password on next launch.

Another way to do it is to uncheck the ""Include when automatically checking new messages"" checkbox under the advanced tab in the account preferences. This will make it so mail is only checked when you click get mail."
