Bad behavior: Clip-o-tron uses email date for add date

I have just found that the clip-o-tron (email clipper) adds clips with the send date of the email rather than the date of the clipping. This disturbs my workflow, as I often view my next actions sorted by add date. I may go back to an email a month or more after I received it to follow up on something. I cannot understand why someone would want this- the send date of the email is preserved in other ways in any case. Any thoughts?
