SSHFS is a horrible hack (albeit a clever one that has many
convenient uses).  Unfortunately I've forgotten the details, but I
know that several important file system semantics do not work
with it, and IMO you should not use this for anything you consider
important that needs reliability.

You're probably better off using (local) IMAP over SSH with your Mutt
mailboxes.  That is, you can ssh into your mail server and run imapd
locally (rather than having it listen to incoming connections), and
Mutt supports this.
