Hi,

I have noticed a bit of a strange problem on one of my servers.

When I create a new account and then check the DNS zone, instead of root.ns1.mydomain.com. I am getting the server main contact email address minus the @!!!

Any ideas? The sites still work, but if someone checks the DNS info they see my email......help! Where is WHM picking it up from?

Anyone got any ideas? Only one of my servers has this problem, and I cant figure out where it is picking the info up from.

Its getting annoying because everytime I create an account I have to go in and edit the DNS zone.

The problem you have is in fact the resolution. The problem we had before is that by default [email protected] is unroutable in CPanel boxes and thus an invalid address, which could lead to problems.

As a suggestion, you could set a role address as your contact address (something like [email protected]) and then redirect it to your personal address or use it directly as such.

Also note that in DNS SOA records you can't use the @ symbol (its reserved in zone files), so the email address is listed as 'admin.domain.com' -- and is correct. However, actually using an email address from an SOA is fairly archaic, as most people would use the Registrar's email from a WHOIS server.

In WHM -& server setup
Leave &Server Contact's E-Mail Address& blank then there would be no problem (as you wish)
