If you look up man muttrc, find the section on index_format. What you're
looking at is designated by %l (that's a letter 'l'), the number of
lines in the message. The notation in the man page says that this
doesn't work with imap, maildir, and mh mailboxes. If you replace it
with %c, you'll get the size of the message in bytes.
