I am not sure what you want to change, but if you are referring to domain administrator email address then look at the SOA record for for your domain in the DNS zone file.

The admin address should be root@localhost
What backup manager are you using?

Check the /etc/aliases file. On my distro this file allows my to enter an email address to associate with specific roles. Look for a line near the bottom that has something like this.

# Person who should get root's mail
root:           me@mydomain.com

On my distro i have to run newaliases after editing this file to get the new aliases to work.
