Have you thought about setting up filters? I can see how simply stuffing
everything you get into your inbox would be a nuicance. Filtering all mail
from suse-linux-e into a separate folder, from linux-kernel into another or
whatever it is you receive is one way to keep things sane

Have you by any chance been playing with pine? I know pine creates a message
like that. I don't know of any modern mailer that uses it, so you can
probably just delete it
