[tor-relays] Email Blocked by ISP

Looking at your email address, you have an ISP assigned email. Unless 
you work for Spectrum, you shouldn't use an ISP email account. I'd 
advise you either:

  * Sign up for a third-party email service like Gmail, Outlook, 
ProtonMail, or Tutanota

  * If you can maintain one, run your own email server (I do this myself 
but many don't recommend it as email servers are complex)

Assuming you have a middle relay, I don't think the relay caused the 
email problems. I believe someone hacked your email, whether through a 
hacker attacking the Spectrum email server or a virus/malware gaining 
access to your email via a browser exploit. Check for this first.
