Subject: no experience but a question before I start

I looked through the rules documentation for John. What is unclear to me
is--and as mentioned in the subject, I know nothing about this stuff--if I
am pretty sure I know part of the password, can the rules be made to
accommodate that? I know for instance that likely the e's are 3's and that
it starts with "c" and may contain a specific word as well

I noticed there are tools listed for cracking email accounts etc. I am not
yet clear if John is even the right app for me. I have some cloud-based
records that are in a password-protected site. I can get in but the records
are 256-bit encrypted. I need to try to crack THAT second password but I
know kind of where to start (so I don't need "as much" of a dictionary
attack, if that makes sense). This is stuff related to my divorce, by the
way so it is quite important. I had too much wine when I last accessed them
and despite having a hint, which helps, I can't quote get there. Yes, I
know I am a dumbass. I have learned a lesson here.

I would really appreciate any advice. I will continue to read about it and
see if I gain a better understanding.

Thanks very much.
