That works fine for me with GMail.  Apparently AOL doesn't "automatically record".
So, I try in my .muttrc:
    # Automatically log in to this mailbox at startup
    set folder="imaps://"
    set spoolfile="+INBOX"
    fcc-hook .  +Archive
which doesn't work.  Does fcc-hook work only for local mail folders?
Should I be using a different hook?  (If I use ~/file it does record
outgoing mail locally, not on the server.)
