The receipt is a ReportItem, and no MailItem. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff865370(v=office.15).aspx for members.
As it seems the CreationTime is what you are looking for. If you also need the corresponding mail item, you will have to perform a search based on the ConversationID.

Thank you  - explains the issue

I didn't realise that the folder could contain items other than mailitems  - I will check item type first then based on the type obtain the correct information.

Thank you

Each folder in Outlook can contain different item types. The folder defines the default type only.

Yes - my code looks into the mail folder for returned emails on a subject basis.
This goes into an access job database where the outgoing emails are created.
When a person replies, it looks at the subject, finds the order number and updates the job with the returned email.
It was starting to get confused when the READ: messages started turning up.

With the change, I can now separate to replies from the read receipts.

Thanks
