recently I received an email from someone whose email address contained strange additions.

Instead of Somebody <address@gmail.com>, it was Somebody <address@gmail.com<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','address@gmail.com');>

What is the added part's function?

According to a post on Stack Overflow, it seems that it is the Javascript to generate custom font. %7B%7D translates to {} and "cvml returns urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml which is an XML namespace for Vector Markup Language".
