okay, i am new to python and realize that indentation is important. i 
have tried to put everything in their respective indentations but it 
still doesn't work, can someone try to fix this?

from poplib import *

server = POP3("")
print server.getwelcome()
print server.user("neurogasm at")
print server.pass_("hahaha")

messagesInfo = server.list()[1]
numMessages = len(messagesInfo)

print numMessages

  emails = []
  for msg in messagesInfo:
   msgNum = int(split(msg, " ")[0]
   msgSize = int(split(msg, " ")[1]
   if(msgSize < 20000):
    message = server.retr(msgNum)[1]
    message = join(message, "\n")
