On an openSUSE 12.3 system, I have started getting the following:

This is an automatically generated mail message from mdadm running on

A DegradedArray event had been detected on md device /dev/md127.

Faithfully yours, etc.

P.S. The /proc/mdstat file currently contains the following:

Personalities : [raid1]
md127 : active raid1 sdf1[0]
1953513280 blocks super 1.0 [2/1] [U_]
bitmap: 15/15 pages [60KB], 65536KB chunk

Was the system rebooted after which you started receiving these
messages? I suspect the md startup found superblock data on sdf1,
which caused the automatic creation of md127 (notice the odd number)
with only a single drive and no mention of a second one. It's a RAID1
array with only one drive, hence degraded.
