I have this:
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'DBA_Mail',
@recipients = 'paresh.motiwala@gmail.com',
@body = 'The count of the unprocessed records.',
@subject ='Number of unprocessed records on SQL1 '+ cast(@recordcount as varchar(10));

somehow the @subject...doesn't like the + sign.
The @recordcount does evaluate itself to proper number.
if I use @subject = @recordcount it works great.

any help is welcome..
Paresh

you cannot append values, or assign variables to the parameters in line:

--not allowed
@subject ='Number of unprocessed records on SQL1 ' + cast(@recordcount as varchar(10));



--the replacement

DECLARE @mysubject varchar(500) = 'Number of unprocessed records on SQL1 ' + cast(@recordcount as varchar(10));

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'DBA_Mail',
@recipients = 'paresh.motiwala@gmail.com',
@body = 'The count of the unprocessed records.',
--assign the parameter to a variable that did the work
@subject = @mysubject

Quick suggestion, if you are on SQL 2012 or later, use the concat function.
Cool
DECLARE @recordcount INT = 007;
DECLARE @mysubject varchar(500) = CONCAT('Number of unprocessed records on SQL1 ',@recordcount);

SELECT @mysubject;[code="sql"]
