You can use the free Message Report utility. It exports messages with Date Received. I recommend this tool because I'm one of the developers, so feel free to ask any further questions.

How did you export your emails?

You can export to PST or to CSV. When exporting to CSV, the date fields are not part of the export map. Dates are in the email body

Hi @alexei, I have exported the same way as John has mentioned in the 2nd comment. But my questions to you guys is, how do I get the dates with the emails ? John, I dont see the dates in the message body in the exported file, is there anything additional we need to do ?

The dates are in the Email headers but I am not sure how to export Headers in addition to the email itself.

As for the message body - this is a planned feature for advanced version of the utility.
