Registry Outlook Mini UID

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm trying to create a registry entry so that Outlook has some new accounts (created programmatically) here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook\9375CFF0413111d3B88A00104B2A6676

The problem is that one of the entries requires a Mini UID and I don't know how to generate one of those.  A sample one is 2f3b8980, but this seems to be a unique number that Outlook(or maybe Windows) creates.

Does anyone know how to create these?
Or do you know anything else about them, like can I create my own ID?
