Difference between timeout/proxy_timeout

hello,

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 ?

thanks
mansoor

After proxy connection is established, nginx uses proxy_timeout between
nginx and upstream only. There is no timeout settings between client
and nginx at all.

Thanks Igor !
