The volume and next_digest_number are stored in the config.db
of each mailing list.

You should be able to use the bin/withlist tool to adjust the
starting numbers:  (withlist loads the list configuration into
the object 'm'):

$ python -i bin/withlist -l mylist
Loading list: mylist (locked)
>>> print m.volume
>>> m.volume=4
>>> m.next_digest_number=12
>>> m.Save()
>>> m.Unlock()
>>> <Ctrl-D>
