Hello

I attempted to send you two emails under email address test@ test.com but it didn't go through, for some reason.

Can you please tell me if it's well worded.

Thanks a lot.

    "Try" would be more common than "attempt" in this case (i.e. "I tried to send you two e-mails..."). This is a correct use of the word attempt, but it doesn't sound completely natural here for some reason. So, I would recommend that you use "tried" instead.

    Since you are referring to two e-mails, you should say "but they didn't go through..." rather than "but it didn't go through..."

    Also, I don't think you need the comma after "though".
