Yes.  If you recall a portion of the password, you can do e.g.:

./john --mask='Iknowthis?l?l[abw-z]?d?d[37]!!!' telegram.txt

where 'Iknowthis' and '!!!' are portions of the password that you know
for sure, and other parts of the mask specify character classes or lists
and/or ranges that are possible in those positions.  Please see doc/MASK.

Sure.  This is the easiest and is what you should have started with, but
it's unlikely to actually recover your password soon enough.
