Unusual Email "Failure Notice"

We received the following bounce back or "Failure Notice" from our ISP provider after one of our people sent an email to our lawyer.  The strange thing is that the email address referred to below, saturdayLg6@nicetourisme.com is neither the sender's nor the recipients.  Should we be worried?  Was someone trying to piggy back on one of our emails, if that's possible.  Thank you.

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at f.mx.broadviewnet.net.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<saturdayLg6@nicetourisme.com>:
217.28.65.83 does not like recipient.

Maybe, but this is actually a bounce back from our ISP provider, Broadview.  And, this did not seem to be part of a mass email, but after one of our people sent a specific email to our lawyer (because both of their email addresses are mentioned).  Unless the spammer has our admin's specific email address and used it to send to our lawyer.??
It's just one possibly from the info you posted.  I've gotten a lot of 'bounce spam'.
My employee gets blocked every so often from our lawyer.  Her email gets bounced back from his IP.  Could it be possible that a spammer is using her email address, his IP white lists her for awhile, then the spammer alternates to another address and after several days she gets de-whitelisted?

To clarify, did you mean someone over here messing around with her email or that she's messing around with her own email.  (By her I'm talking about the employee that received the bounce back.)
No, now I'm losing track, too many questions.  The fact that that email address is unknown is what made me think it's 'bounce spam'.  There are several ways that the other email addresses could have been picked including the possibility of viruses on any of the computers.  I think you just need to keep track because you don't yet have enough info to know what's going on.
Thanks for all your help.  I think Dave's right in that I don't have enoough repetitions or enough info to go on yet.
