I am getting a lot of mails everyday, with different senders, different subjects, but always the same.
They have text, but also weird graphics like the above, and some text in it also.

It's spam. Delete it and move on.

On another note, you may want to stop using imageshack. Clicking on that picture leads to pop ups and other ads. Photobucket is also free, but doesn't have all of that.

Thanks, no need Smile. it's just randomly generated gibberish to bypass spam filters.
