I have configured dbmail on sql server 2008. This works fine but I wish to Pass dynamic data into the mail message. My stored procedure has a variable @mailtxt  and the variable is populated from other variables as below
declare @Mailtxt nvarchar(250)
declare @email nvarchar(70)
declare @Jobnum nvarchar(12)
select @Jobnum = (select DwJobnumber from inserted)
select @email = (SELECT ‘myemail@mycomp.co.uk’)
select @mailtxt  = (select 'User ' + @email + ' has put bad time value in Job ' + @Jobnum)
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @profile_name='Tracker_Mail',
@subject= 'Bad Delivery date' ,
@body = @mailtxt

The mail is sent but without the details in @mailtxt. What is the correct method to pass the values into the mail body?
