RE: [SLE] Uh...what's this?

This is not as weird as it looks.

The English section is a translation of the Turkish section which
precedes it; the fact that you may be seeing "weird" characters is
simply due to the fact that the message was sent with iso-8859-9
(Turkish) encoding, whereas you are probably reading them with
iso-8859-1 encoding; to see them as they are meant to be seen you
would need to switch your email reader into "Turkish" encoding
(and you would also need to link this to Turkish fonts).

As to what the message is about, it looks like an error-bounce back
to you (as originator of the message) to the effect that whoever
"username@xxxxxxxx" may be (pity it does not say what "username" is)
is now at "username@xxxxxxx" -- presumably one of the people that
the SuSE list tries to deliver to -- and while they have obligingly
delivered it this time, they are asking you (actually SuSE) to change
the address to the new form as soon as possible.
