How do I configure the fields of the Rmail summary?

The code is in rmailsum.el, but I just can't find the place!

For example, the first column in the Rmail summary seems to indicate... mail number? I can't say I need this information ;) so how do I specify not to show it?

Or, if there is no such option, can you find the place that actually prints it, in the code?
