The "YAST" should have been a clue:  that has nothing to do with RT, it's a 
misconfiguration in SuSE's YaST config file (/etc/rc.config).  Your mailer 
is supposed to append the local hostname to any email addresses that lack 
one; because it was never set, it defaulted to YAST_ASK and that's what the 
mailer (sendmail, postfix, whatever) is appending.
