what's the difference between timeout and proxy_timeout directives for mail ? 
from the documentation, what i can tell is that timeout is the inactivity timer between downstream client and nginx 

whereas proxy_timeout is the inactivity timer between nginx and upstream server 

what about when the proxy connection is established (i.e. route lookup has taken place and the user has logged in) ? 
which timer of these two is in force then ?
