I keep getting this error:
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'ORDER'.

Basically, I'm trying to find all the rows grouped by email that have a count = 4.  I want those 4 to be ordered by the time field so that I can pull the entries in chronological order.  
insert into TableB
( qid, rep, time, email, idmarker )
( 
select TOP 2 qid, rep, time, email, idmarker
FROM TableA
WHERE email IN 
(
select email FROM 
tableA
group by email 
having COUNT(*) = 4
)
ORDER BY time 
)
GO
