Help getting United to stop using my email address for testing

Okay, I've got an annoying but not serious issue. A few weeks ago I reported to United that I was unable to book a ticket using one of my email addresses (it has a .solutions top level domain). It looks like they're working on fixing the problem because I keep getting confirmation emails for a passenger "TEST TESTING". I'm glad they're working on the issue, but I don't need those emails (unless they want to give me the miles for those flights). I've tried emailing them again, but have gotten no response. Anyone have any ideas on how to get this to stop?

Thanks!

Does your email program have an adaptive spam filter? That's the easiest way to avoid seeing such emails, by a long shot.

It does, but I don't want to miss United emails that I do need (which is always a risk). It's actually more funny than annoying.

Print them all and drop them on a customer service agent's desk at the airport.

Perhaps try logging into ua.com with the ANR and name changing the reservation if it's there - cheap flight!

If I was getting email like that, I'd setup a filter and be ecstatic that they were actually fixing the problem.

Consider them to be "progress updates". When they stop coming they likely have fixed the issue.

This is United. It'll mean it's broken beyond repair.
