Mail Proxy with Odoo

We have multiple problems fetching mails in the ERP where Odoo mail fetching process gets hanged which forces us to restart Odoo service.

We suspect (but not sure because of the lack of log output) that they are due to bad Internet connection between Odoo and the mail provider (outside of the country and potentially slowed down by the Great Firewall).

We think that this might be caused by timeout and retry management (or lack thereof) in Odoo (I remember some conversation in this mailing list about the topic).

We are thinking about setting up a local mail proxy (such as to improve the retrieval management.

Has somebody perform this kind of set up and could point to some helper documentation?
Any alternative or suggestion for this kind of set up?

(PS: might be repeated mail but I lost the track of the first one...)
