I suspect all you need is to sort the message-directory block. Probably as
simply as adding the following line
You'll get your messages in reverse order because you are inserting at the
head of the block each time.
Alternatively, after sorting do the foreach on the "head reverse" of the
message block and insert at the tail of your result.
