@soumi_soumiya
Parse the string as a DateTime object and then use the ToString function to return it in the format that you want.
DateTime.Parse(dateString).ToString("ddMMMyyyy") where dateString is the value shown in your Message Box.

System.DateTime.Now.ToString(“ddMMMyyyy”) - this will return the current time (19JUL2019) according to your computer.

You can use a Move File activity to rename the file. Just “move” it from the old filename to the new one. So let’s say your file is on the desktop and is called mail.msg you can do Move File with Path set to
"C:\Users\your_username\Desktop\mail.msg" and Destination set to "C:\Users\your_username\" + DateTime.Parse(dateString).ToString("ddMMMyyyy") + ".msg"

Thanks a Loot it works
