    Nothing quite so specific or in one place. You have the dates on the message and may have additional information in contact's activites as well as the journal.

    Re: Message History (OL2000)

    The dates saved with the message item require some interpretation:
    <pre>Sub ShowDates()
    Dim itmmail As MailItem, strMessage As String
    If Inspectors.Count > 0 Then
    Set itmmail = ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    Else
    MsgBox "Please open a message first!"
    Exit Sub
    End If
    strMessage = _
    "Created ... " & itmmail.CreationTime & vbCrLf & _
    "Sent ....... " & itmmail.SentOn & vbCrLf & _
    "Received .. " & itmmail.ReceivedTime & vbCrLf & _
    "Modified ... " & itmmail.LastModificationTime
    MsgBox strMessage
    Set itmmail = Nothing
    End Sub</pre>

    In the case of an incoming message in a PST tapping a POP3 server, "Created" is when the message was downloaded, "Sent" was the time sent by the sender, "Received" is when the server got it, and "Modified" is the last time Outlook annotated the message (in this case, the time I forwarded it). I don't think there is any reliable way to know the meaning of these times for an arbitrarily selected message. (We don't use Exchange; messages in your server-based mailbox might offer additional fields.)
