As Answered in the Forum:

no, this is not common behavior. It should work that only when the mail is 
"read" that GpgOL attempts to decrypt that.

I think an explanation could be that you have an Addon or other software on 
the affected systems which might automatically "read" each incoming mail 

Have you thought about extending the gpg-agent's passphrase cache timeout so 
that the passphrase is only asked once per login session? You can do that with 
Kleopatra or through the gnupg config.
