[Dshield] mail server does not like unspecified recipient

Two completely unrelated people sent me e-mails specifying the exact same
problem within 24 hours of each other.  They both sent out an e-mail, one
was a shared Outlook object the other a reply, and they both received a
bounced notification from our ISP's e-mail server specifying an e-mail
address neither one of them knows about.  This strikes me as fairly abnormal
and makes me worry about the server's health and integrity.  Is this
something I should be concerned with?  Please see below for bounced message.

It's the Invoice Period....not the Invoice Date    .....

e.g.  We may invoice 12/1/2005  through 12/15/2005 (Invoice Period) labor,
equipment, and ODCs on 1/15/2006 (Invoice Date)

Debbie - I have a question about the Summary.  When I put the start and end
dates in there, what exactly do these dates refer to?
Date of invoice, dates covered by the invoice, date of entry, other?

Thanks - Me
