Thanks for going through the trouble of running an exit relay!

Looks like this ISP is not suitable for Tor exit relays. Please add it
to the https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/GoodBadISPs
page, and find a better one. I'm afraid there's not much else you can
do. Make sure to inform the ISP beforehand about the risks, be fast and
polite in answering abuse complaints, and as long as the ISP doesn't
know you well enough make sure the ISP of all places understands how you
handled the complaint and why. For example, for the POP3 case, you could
have offered to block POP3 altogether.

In case you haven't seen it already, this is a must-read for exit
