Please reply to the support list instead of to me directly.

I think that the number you're seeing is the Resource (unique
connection identifier for multiple simultaneous logins) that is
assigned automatically by the server that you're connecting to.

If you like, you can put a value in the "Resource" field of your
account setup and that (or something based on that) should be used
instead of the random value.
