Probably. But (from orig post):
Domain Name: ATHOME.NET
Updated Date: 02-apr-2007
Creation Date: 30-nov-1999
Expiration Date: 30-nov-2015
whois shows an update yesterday and creation 8-years ago.
Presumably, something happened based on the update...

Yes -- that works. I'd changed .net to .nzt and localhost works again.
I've spent the last couple hours trying to get sendmail to not do a DNS for specified-local addresses. Lots of google-info, but none that directly works. Much to be assimilated -- I'm pretty sure there's a sendmail solution too.
