Question About new MileagePlus Account

I just created a new MileagePlus account for a family member on the phone with the MP Service Desk. I used the same email address as that which I use for my own account. Confirmation emails are not coming into that email address, yet when I offered a different email address they came through just fine. There are no issues with my main email. I was assured by multiple agents that using the same email for both accounts should not cause a problem.

Any advice or suggestions?

Thanks very much.

I use my email address for my daughter's account and it does work just fine. However, if you do have a problem and use gmail, consider adding a dot somewhere in the address -- United will see it as different but google ignores it. So for some uses, I am [email protected], while my daughter is [email protected].

Or use plus addressing . . . [email protected] - will come to you. Plus addressing is available with other email providers as well.
