    Hi @English, Tabbie ,

    Welcome to Q&A forum!

    According to my research and testing, when the mail is dragged into the library, the default file creation time of SharePoint is the time of dragging. To get the send on timestamp, you need to get the content of the email, which is currently no ootb way to make it in SharePoint. Maybe it's possible with Power Automate. but Power Automate is currently not supported in the Q&A forum. So we suggestion you go to Power Automate Community create a new discussion to get more professional help.

    Hope your issue gets resolved soon. :)

    Hi @English, Tabbie ,

    Thank you for your feedback! :)

    As I said before, there is no out-of-the-box tool for this functionality in SharePoint itself. I still suggest you consider Power automate. If you really don't want to use power automate, I suggest you go to feedback on this issue, this is the best platform to let us hear from you and make our products and services better for you and others. The more votes, the easier it is to be seen. Hope the problem can be resolved soon.

    Have a nice day!
