I have a VB script that changes the name of a msg file to Sender -
Subject. Now I am looking to change the modified date to be the
received date of the email. I thought the following code should do it,
but it does not. The name changes but date does not. Any help would be
great.
Cheers

Perhaps the format of "olkMessage.ReceivedTime" is incorrect.
By the way, if you want to increase the exposure of your posts,
use cross-posting. Multi-posting makes you unpopular because
it causes respondents to waste their time - see here:

How is this script working out for you?
As luck would have it I am trying to do the exact same thing.

How are you executing it?
Does it run within outlook or from the command line?

I tried it as well using such a script but gave up.
Our company now uses mailtofile (www.mailtofile.com) to archive msg

Well I spent some time reworking this script to suite my needs and
have it working quite well.

.MSG file are placed in one of several folders through out the day
based on project and content.
The script runs against the folders on a schedule renaming the files
as needed.

It turned out very nice. My Administrative Ladies just LOVE me
now.....

If anyon is interested I will post the code.

I would love to see the code on this.   This is quite the issue for me
right now....
Here is the code I wrote.....VBscript
Feel free to ask any questions.
I have tried to comment everything enough for good reference.
It should be easy to modify for your situation.

I apologize for any code sloppiness, this is my 1st "production"
VBScript
There is some line wraping in the code below.

Let me know what you think.
My first full run against my server renamed 44976 messages with no
issues.
It took about 45 hours to go through 37000+ folders.

The "update runs" only take about 15-20 minutes to climb the entire
project tree and rename 50-100 messages per day.

Let me know what you think. If you come up with ways to make it
better, please share...

My next project is to write a script to move an email to the proper
folder based on the standardized subject.
Example...
Move and RFI email to the RFI folder, Move a PR email to the PR
Folder, and move Meeting Minutes to the Meeting Minutes folder. The
Ladies were kind enough to give me 43 different folders and codes to
evaluate for each email.

When I get this new one working I will be happy to share it as well.

Dear Everett3rd,

I have the same problem as described and i am interest in using your script. however, I am a noob in all kind of programming. can you show me how to copy and create a file. or to run this script open a command window and type "Email-
Efile.vbs" at the command prompt.

Thanks,

I have a VB script that changes the name of a msg file to Sender -
Subject. Now I am looking to change the modified date to be the
received date of the email. I thought the following code should do it,
but it does not. The name changes but date does not. Any help would be
great.

I use this almost daily to put messages into disk folders, reducing the size of the accumulating .pst file. Because messages are often threaded, the above code returns errors very frequently because of duplicate filenames. With some tweaking I modified the code as shown below. Now I almost never get an error message stop. Basically, I added a loop to produce a unique filename for repeating messages.
