Joel has already pointed out the indentation error in your class.

However there is another problem... but possibly not with your code.

The if, elif and else indentation is way off
Now that is probably due to emails being messed up,
but it makes it hard to give sensible feedback since
there could be bugs but we can't see them.sensibly...

Please be sure to send the complete error message
and not just summarize it and also use plain text,
especially when posting code.
