is this the date of the receive rather the date of delete?
Test your restores, not your backups...

There is no "date deleted" for an email that is maintained and that you could sort on, sorry.

The closest you can come is using the "date last modified", typically this will be updated when the email is moved to a deleted state.  Of course other non-deleted emails could have a value in this property also, but if you are just looking at the deleted items folder then you can probably get what you want sorting by the last modified date.
