However, processed documents may trigger an agent and bounce back from the folder to your inbox. To prevent this, modify your DeliveredDate field when the agent runs.

With this agent, information from the DeliveredDate field is copied to the NewDeliveredOn field and the DeliveredDate field is deleted.

Note: The Date and Who column formulas in the mail file (folders) will have to be modified accordingly:

Date column changes:

@If(DeliveredDate != ""; DeliveredDate; @IsAvailable("NewDeliveredOn"); 
NewDeliveredOn; PostedDate != ""; PostedDate; @Created)

Who column changes:

Who := @If((DeliveredDate != "" | @IsAvailable("NewDeliveredOn") | SendTo = "");
 SentBy; @Subset(SendTo; 1));

Note: The agent can be modified to include the CopyTo field as well.
