Please use code tags when posting code.

You need to be detailed about your problem. You just have your stored procedure code. That by itself does not return anything. You haven't shown how you're trying to execute it and how you're trying to pull the return values.

Thanx for the reply Mr.Rabbit...I am using 3 out parameters in the procedure..which should return the values based on the mailbox to return the output parameters values?

You still haven't shown me the code that actually runs the stored procedure. That's where you need to make changes to get it to return the output parameters. I can't advise you on how to fix it if you don't show me how you call it.

I don't see anything wrong with the procedure. As long as your queries are correct. What's most likely wrong is that you're calling it incorrectly. But since you haven't shown how you're calling it, I can't tell you if that's the case.

If you are expecting those three returns to be executed, you're probably wrong. The first return will be executed with the variable @open as returned value. Anything after the first return is not executed.

That is not the way you pass the value of the returned variables. It will also depend on the way you call the SP, which you seems unable to share.

We cannot help you fully if there are missing information from your question.

Good Luck!!!
