    I keep getting emails with this error:

    Code:
    nameserver failed @ Wed Sep 12 13:40:42 2012. A restart was attempted automagically.

    Etc.

    Those messages all seem to be for domains that I no longer host.

    There's also the following message:
    Code:
    Sep 12 13:40:45 909F6 named[10531]: client 108.170.46.171#33855: view internal: received notify for zone [domain]
    These seem to be for domains I do host.

    I get these emails every 5 minutes, and it's extremely annoying. I'd rather fix the issue than just change the email, so if someone could give me some tips, it'd be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    The primary error message I see is:

    Please post the output of the following command on your system:

    Code:
    # rndc status
    Thank you.
