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.

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?
