I recently had a problem that required me to throttle back the prefs.max_size.

"Truncated" messages appear in the Inbox, representing the bodies that were left
behind.  However, sadly, the Message-Size column on the UI shows the meaningless
size of the dummy message.  In this case, the most helpful piece of information
would have been the *actual* message size as reported by the POP3 "LIST" response.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set preference to limit the maximum size of messages to be downloaded.
2. Download a batch that includes messages above the maximum.

Actual Results:  
OBSERVE, the messages that were not downloaded show an actual "Subject: "
header, but a size of 1Kb - 3Kb.  ( The size of the dummy notification message,
more or less ).

Expected Results:  
Display the actual size of the message.
