Email Reverse Proxy issue

I am using Nginx as an Email reverse proxy.
The email client sends a request to the nginx, the nginx fetch the WHOLE
email(message) from exchange server, and only then manipulates it and sends
it back to client.
Email Client<---->Nginx<----> Office 365
Everything is working great, besides the following problem, the Email client
has a timeout of 30 seconds,
but sometimes it can take the Nginx to download the whole email more the
30sec (if it has a big attachment).
My question is as follow:
In the meantime can the nginx send 'something' to the client to keep him
aware that something is being downloaded ?
Right now I have an ugly patch that sends on the open socket 'blanks' to the
client every 20 seconds, until the nginx can send him the whole file.
