Outlook Email Date Stamp

This Macro will change the page creation date to match the Sent date on the email. This will then allow you to use the Sort by Date macro regardless of when you moved the mail message to OneNote. Please note that since this macro affects all pages within a Section, it cannot be undone. It will not affect Pages that do not follow the Outlook Email format. To Cancel this Macro, click on the red box in the upper right of this window.

The macro does not work for other languages !!!
We have "gesendet" instead of 'sent' and also the creation date in one note
use german wekkday 'Montag, Dienstag, ....'
