If I try to edit a message in mutt and save changes, what happens is
that the old one is marked to be deleted and a new one appears with
'unread' flag.

To mimic this and therefore force local -> remote sync, you would have
to delete the original file in maildir/cur/ directory and create new one
in maildir/new/

Or maybe you can create a new file in maildir/cur/ as well, but it needs
to have a different filename than the original message. The Message-Id
header must stay the same, but the filename has to be changed.
