    Yes, that is spam.

    executivehomesvs.com is a known spammer.



    EDIT:

    And Google doesn't like them:

    We get alot of those. It's not SPAM itself, it is a response to SPAM sent by someone spoofing your boss's e-mail address. We've been seeing this more and more lately. Usually, after 2 or 3 days, they'll stop getting these responses.

    Also, GFI has a patch out now that properly marks it as SPAM. Tell your IT people to update their filter.
