I want to export a folder of email messages from Outlook 2000 to an Access database, but the export utility doesn't take the dates, only to, from, subject, body, etc.  How can I do this?

Try linking to the folder from Access - you can find it under File/Get external data from the menu - it will show Received, Created & Modified Date/Times - you can then copy the relevant mails into another table using a make table query

Did the trick.  Not perfect, but between exporting normally and linking to Outlook directly, I can get what I want.  Thanks.
