In the column selection tool, at upper right in Message List, one can select "Total", which I kinda thought would show the total number of messages in the list. When selected, it shows nothing at all in that column. What is it supposed to do??

If you hover the mouse over "Total" it displays "Total number of messages in a thread". So if none of the messages are in a thread (a conversation) that column will always be empty.

Oh, you're exactly right. Thank you. You'd like to believe it would be called "Thread total".
