You need to give us the IP address of the relay so that one can check if
the ORPort is reachable. It should be, since that is indicated in the
log messages but doesn't hurt to check.

It takes some time until you can see it on atlas / relay search, it's
not instant. Give it up to 24 hours. You will see it earlier here (but
not instantly under any circumstances):


(careful, large page and can take some time to load) by searching for
your nickname or fingerprint - see what the directory authorities have
to say about your relay.

The IP addresses of all relays in the network are public and not
considered sensible information, but I can see a possibility where you
don't want a certain IP address tied to the email you are posting here
with, so it's up to you to decide but you can go to a port checking
website (google it) and check the relay IP address ORPort if open or not.

If yes, wait for 24 hours and check back on relay search.
