    My iPhone always receives emails a minute or two before my mac and it's a bit annoying when I want to reply instantly using my mac.

    First your mail server needs to be IMAP and support push mail.

    Go into Mail » Preferences » Accounts (Advanced) and make sure that Use IDLE command if the server supports it is enabled (it's enabled by default).

    (This is the fun part) Again go into Mail » Preferences » General and set Check for new Mail to Manually.

    Now send yourself a new message (preferably from a different account) and watch the fun.
