For everyone who is willing to help - here is a formatted query:
SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT 
managername, 
'(' + RTRIM(CAST(Aemails AS char)) + ') ' + shopname AS amountemails
FROM 
(
	SELECT 
	managername, 
	shopname,
	(SELECT COUNT(*) AS msg FROM dbo.T_Customer_Mailbox AS A WHERE (datereply IS NULL) AND (status = 1) AND (ToUser = B.managername)) AS Aemails
	FROM dbo.T_SYS_ShopSystem AS B
) AS T
WHERE (Aemails > 0)
ORDER BY shopname

My guess is that this is a view and it doesn't like the CAST(Aemails AS char) without a length being specified. Since Aemails is an int, varchar(10) would be more appropriate.
