Is this a real e-ticket receipt?

My traveling companion and I purchased a *Aliiance Europe Airpass for travel in November. I received an email confirmation from United, but I did not bother to read it... I just saved it on my computer to print out later. Yesterday, I printed it out and realized that they sent his e-ticket receipt/itinerary to my email but not mine. I called UA and requested to get a copy of mine. They sent me a confirmation, but it does not actually say "e-ticket receipt". It only says "Travel Itinerary" where it should also say "E-Ticket Receipt". It also says "For Reference Only". Is this a real e-ticket receipt, or should I call back and ask for one that specifically says it?

E-ticket receipts must have eticket numbers, usually 016 xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

Thanks for the replies. I called UA back and got someone who knew what she was doing. The real e-ticket receipt came in my email today.

Hello,

Is E-Ticket Same Thing As E-Ticket Receipt because I went on the website that shows your itinerary, beside that it says: View e-Ticket Receipt And when You Click That another thing comes up and says "Print E-ticket Receipt"

So my question is, Is a "e-Ticket Receipt" same thing as "E-Ticket"?

tickets issued by UA start with 016
