    I just recently installed DNSONLY on a smaller VPS to test out. After setting up I did a dig myhostname.com mx to view everything and it only showed one nameserver of ns1.mydomainname.com - Along with that it also showed my personal email address? I cannot figure out two things:

    1) Where would my personal email address be located so I can change that to display my server admin email address?

    2) Why would DNSONLY be showing a single nameserver when I set up both ns1 and ns2 ? Did I incorrectly set something up? Or is there something additional I need to do to add the second one?

    Figured it out - Dig MX only displays the SOA records - I need to run dig NS - It is in fact using both NS1 and NS2 *SOLVED
