    I have a bad email address stuck in my system! Every time I create a new DNS zone I have to go back and manually edit the zone and change the authority email address.

    I've changed the account and reseller email contacts - it's not on any of those. As far as I can tell, the email isn't set in any of my cpanel settings. There has to be a configuration file somewhere that's hanging on to that old email setting, however.

    The email address is set in the WHM > DNS Functions > Edit Zone Templates area for each of the templates there. You can hard-code a different email address for that %rpemail%. entry.
