Probably this: https://github.com/neomutt/neomutt/issues/1958#issuecomment-559959360

Basically you need to change your muttrc to use named-mailboxes instead mailboxes. In my case this meant changing

mailboxes = +"INBOX" +"sent"


named-mailboxes "INBOX" =INBOX
named-mailboxes "Sent" =sent

Hope it helps!
