Is there a setting for .muttrc that I cannot find that will enable this? I'm sure this ssort of thing goes against mutt purists but I bet it can be done.

Bonus question: How can I enlarge the space(inbox) at the top of mutt's message preview mode from 4 lines to more?

I think the scrolling setting you want is

set menu_scroll

To set the size of that box, use

set pager_index_lines=6

where the value is one more than the number of messages lines you wish to show.
