Symptoms

You are using the documentation for 4.3 Configure and Verify SNMP for InfiniBand Switch Targets to setup the SNMP alerts for the IB switches:

When testing the alert using the Test Button, no results or emails are generated.

There are curly braces around the ILOM Infiniband Alert Management address which is causing the problem.  From the SNMP server log:

This is failing on the from address. The only difference between ILOM Infiniband alerts and all the other ILOM alerts are the curly braces it puts around the from address.
