You can display the size using the `c' or `k' format specifier in

,----[ (info "(gnus)Summary Buffer Lines") ]
| `c'
|      Number of characters in the article.  This specifier is not
|      supported in some methods (like nnfolder).
| `k'
|      Pretty-printed version of the number of characters in the article;
|      for example, `1.2k' or `0.4M'.

Additionally, you probably want to sort the articles by size by
including `gnus-article-sort-by-chars' in `gnus-article-sort-functions'.
See (info "(gnus)Sorting the Summary Buffer").

If you want to do this for several IMAP groups, you may want to add
all relevant groups to a virtual group and do the sorting there, see
(info "(gnus)Virtual Groups").

Bye, Reiner.
