mysterious spam message

The following mysterious message - quoted below in its entirety with its 
header information - appeared in my e-mail, from the address 
Note that it has two headers - when you receive it it should have three. (The 
"click here" wasn't actually a link in the original - just an underlined 

What in the world is the mysterious text near the bottom of the main text, 
partly repeated between the two headers? It has obvious structure - open (CV) 
syllables except for a couple of missing consonants - not phonetically 
Japanese or Chinese. Doesn't appear to be a public key.

Hey, maybe we can make these guys an offer they can't refuse - their diplomas 
in Voynichese. Extra charge for nymphs.
