The setting you're looking for is mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new.
Set that to true and it will do what you want. I've used it once, but it
seemed to cause issues with IDLE; it seemed like after checking all
folders, it would IDLE on which ever folder it selected last during the
check and not on the folder you were currently viewing, however that
could just be me ;)
