I have recently done something to the archiving solution and now all the email modified date has moved a head to a recent date.
I need to reset those modified date to the received date so the archiving solution can repick those email and archieve it.

i have spoken to symantec support and they say there are nothing they can do, so i am sourcing 3rd party tools to the job.
the only way is to change the archieve rules or do it manually (which is super pain)

the one i have found through google is ArchiveAssist from cardiffsoft.com but i am looking whether either there are some other 3rd party tools, OR powershell (exchange 2007) able to perform the task i am looking for.

I am open to other suggestion that works. thanks

There is another product called Outlook True Archive (http://www.outlooktruearchive.com/) which may be better for your needs.

Alternatively, you can set up Outlook to do a customised search on Received dates, although this is partly manual it is at least free, and may be acceptable for a one-off.  Full details of this technique are in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/295657

Powershell is more of a high-level tool for server and Exchange management.  To manipulate items inside the store, you'd be looking more towards Web Services for Exchange, although I don't know of any products that currently leverage that technology to do what you want.  You could mention this issue to Symantec and see whether they have any advice?  They might even be working on a solution, you can't be their only customer with this isssue.  Aternatively, I guess there's a bunch of 3rd-party developers currently working on stuff like this, so who knows what may come out in the future; or you could try and write something yourself (quite a few resources to get you started on Web Services exist now); or you could hire/commission some code from someone to do this for you.

i mention to symantec but i will restress that with them tomorrow.
although thier theory is once the email has changed the modified, you need to wait until it match the archiving rules again.

I have resolved this through Symantec Support.
End up they found that the product able to ignore the modified date so the product can continue archieve all the emails via registry hack.

Create the key: HKLM\Software\KVS\Enterprise Vaults\Agents\IgnoreEVDates - which is a DWORD entry which needs to be created. with a Value of 1.
 
The values signify:
 
0 = Off
 
1 = Ignore Archived date
 
2 = Ignore Restored date
 
3 = Ignore both Archived and Restored date
 
Before we implemented this key, disable scheduled archiving and backups, so this will not process any other user's mailbox besides the ones you want to target
 
Then run the Mailbox Archiving Task against the mailboxes, and the message should now begin to archive.
 
**ONCE COMPLETED, DELETE THIS REGISTRY KEY.**

Open in new window
