As Erick said, it may have been classified as spam and discarded.  His
advice of using plain text instead of HTML or rich text is one of the
top things to try.  If you actually received a bounce message, that
bounce should have information about why it was rejected.

The q.alt parameter is an alternate query, in *lucene* parser syntax,
that dismax or edismax will execute when the q parameter is empty or
missing.  It is quite common to use q.alt=*:* in the handler defaults so
that if you omit the q parameter or send an empty string, you get all
docs.  If there is a non-empty q parameter, q.alt is ignored.
