Short answer: Yes.

Make sure you have write rights on the mounted volume.

And instead of using --alternate-config-dir (if you're planning to
use it only to point to claws-configuration folder on the mounted
system), explore symlinking your .claws-mail to the mounted path.
Works great for me since I switch back-and-forth between linux and
windows installations all the time without needing to sync anything.
