Any tools that reset the "modified date" to the original received/sent date in exchange?

Does anyone know of any tools or other methods that can reset the modified date of a message to the original recieved/sent date?

Basically, we have many users that have smartphones where sync. software is causing the modified date of all their messages to be altered .. causing AutoArchiving to not work properly as it's based on the modified date.

I'm looking to reset all the modified dates even briefly enough to run an autoarchive to manage the size of an exchange database.

Would implementing server side Mailbox Manager policy be out of the question? Maybe set it to move items older than xx days then have their Autoarchive process the contents of the System Cleanup\Inbox folder daily?

Since the Modified Date is a MAPI properties of each item, there is probably a way to change it programmatically.

Thanks.

I'll need to think about that.
Would it be possible to have the management policy dynamically create new folders in the "system cleanup" folder?

Users tend to create many folders outside of the inbox to sort their mail.
If a user creates a new folder, the server side management process would need to be set up to create a folder with the same name in under "system cleanup".

Using mailbox management, then running AutoArchiving agains that folder with a very low threshold for archiving old items is a workaround.
