I would check with your IT department.  It looks like they are using proofpoint's policy based encryption based on content.  Does he get this shortly after sending an email?

The only other option that I am aware of is if someone is "spoofing" your bosses email address.  Any response would go to him.  I would contact them and see if they can help you.
