Support date/time variables in folder names of extraction file mailboxes

We have file system mailboxes that are configured to extract all files sent to a local folder for archiving, e.g. F:\GentranFiles\Outbound. Because of the huge amount of files, we have to archive them by system date, e.g. F:\GentranFiles\Outbound\2015-01-30.

This is done by a Windows batch file that is executed by a delivery rule: the file is intercepted and "diverted" to a folder that contains the date. However, this workaround does not always work and we suspect that this has a negative impact on mailbox performance and stability.

It would be very helpful if date/time variables (as used in extended rules) were supported in the name of the extraction path, e.g. F:\GentranFiles\Outbound\%Y-m-d%. This would make workarounds via delivery rules and batch files obsolete.
