I've transitioned over the last couple of years to using exclusively aliases. I do not give my actual email address to absolutely anyone.

If someone leaks the alias I gave them to spammers, I write the offending company a strongly-worded email, then disable or spin up a new alias to use.

For your situation, these things happen all the time and your email provider will likely work it out soon enough. It's just a bit cat and mouse game with spam.

You can create a temporary filter to move them to and disable the notification for those emails for now.
