Only the envelope sender needs to be subscribed, and only the suse list admin
can see that. The mail sent out to subscribers have all that info stripped

The random text is an old trick to get past antispam programs. My guess is
that it originally had an attachment with some virus or whatever that they
hoped the user would click.
SUSE's list server of course strips off all attachments, so we never saw it.
At least that's my uneducated guess
