Help! Mail to 'localhost' not staying local

Somthing changed -- literally overnight! Or perhaps, some old problem is just showing up.
All my log reports, et cetera are stuck in mqueue.
Example -- for years, the following line has been in root's crontab: (sorry if folded)
@reboot /bin/echo "reboot" |/usr/bin/mail -s "start-up at `date`" root at localhost
It has worked without any problems delivering an email indicating start-up time.
Now... Well, here's some lines from the 'mqueue' file:
H??Received: from zebra.athome.net (localhost.athome.net [127.0.0.1])
by zebra.athome.net (8.13.3/8.13.3) with ESMTP id l33AFhEA000481
for <root at zebra.athome.net>; Tue, 3 Apr 2007 06:15:44 -0400 (EDT)
(envelope-from root at ld2.networksolutions.com)
H??Received: (from root at localhost)

for root at localhost; Tue, 3 Apr 2007 06:15:43 -0400 (EDT)
It seems that my local network name of "athome.net" is being "evaluated."

It's been around since 1999, but was updated yesterday.
I'm assuming I did something wrong years back in my 'sendmail' setup. At this point, I certainly don't remember the whys & hows of what I did!
Could someone *please* help?
