The sequence number is the list attribute post_id which started at list
inception. You can see what it currently is with

  bin/dumpdb lists/<listname>/config.pck | grep post_id

If its current value is not acceptable, you can set post_id to anything
you want with bin/withlist or bin/config_list, but be sure to set it
to a floating point number, e.g. 12345.0 rather than 12345

Only by modifying the code in Mailman/Handlers/CookHeaders.py
