Why do exported EML and MSG file have the current date stamp instead of the original email date?

This problem is usually caused by the Windows file indexing feature, which updates the file date stamp on reading it. 

To fix this, you can go to Control Panel -> Indexing Options -> Advanced -> File Types, and uncheck the extensions “eml” and “msg” from the list.
