I have the hostname successfully appearing in my prompt.  In my .zshrc there is

PROMPT="%t-%m-%?-%h-%# "
if [ ${+CLEARCASE_ROOT} = 1 ]; then
    RPROMPT=" [${VIEWNAME}]-%60<\<**<%~"
    RPROMPT=" %80<\<**<%~"

So at the left margin I have
- time of day
- hostname
- exit status of last cmd
- history entry number
- % or #

and at the right margin I have the tail of the current directory name, prefixed
with the ClearCase view I'm in inside [..] if I am actually inside a view.

Are you using the hostname command rather than %m to try to do this?
