It is not being sent from the address of one of the contacts, so it
will not be automatically processed.

Anything that isn't automatically processed gets printed and thrown
into a big slightly malfunctioning paper shredder.  Anything that makes
it through the paper shreader is then looked at and sometimes responded 
to.  The time that it takes for this to happen is based on the mandatory
one week delay before it is printed just for good luck, and then the
chances of making it through the shredder.  Note that their method may
vary slightly from that described above, but the effect is the same.

Your chances at getting any response from hostmaster@internic.net to 
something that isn't handled automatically are slim to none in my
experience.  Normally, repeated phone calls and followup calls are the
proper way to do this.
