It is the list attribute post_id. The easiest way to set it is with
bin/withlist. For example, here I have a list named list2 which has
never been posted to and I am setting the next sequence # to 4237.
Note that it is a floating point value, i.e. typing the '.' is

$ bin/withlist -l list2
Loading list list2 (locked)
The variable `m' is the list2 MailList instance
>>> m.post_id
>>> m.post_id = 4237.
>>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: list2

'$' is the shell prompt, '>>>' is the Python prompt, the last input to
Python is control-D (end of file).
