If I understand the question, yes, that's what I do all the time.
I leave a screen session running under my UID all the time. It in turn
keeps mutt instances open. When I connect via ssh to that machine, the
first thing I do is "screen -r" to reattach the screen process to my
local terminal. That gives me immediate access to the various processes
I left running last time I ssh'd in, all still running the way I left
When I'm done and intend to close my ssh connection, I do "screen -d" to
detach, then shut the ssh tunnel.
The biggest disadvantage is lack of support for detached operation.
