message stats exchange 2007

I am running the following code and am getting a cannot convert value "27/02/2014" to type system date error.   The transport logs could be in a different date format.  My power shell skills aren't so good

change the line to the following

$outfile_date = get-date -Format "yyyy_MM_dd"

instead of
$outfile_date = [datetime]$rundate.tostring("yyyy_MM_dd")
