offlineimap supports SOCKS5 (no hostname reoslving yet) proxy, but it needs python2-pysocks.
Or it will ignore proxy settings with the following output:

OfflineIMAP 7.1.2
Licensed under the GNU GPL v2 or any later version (with an OpenSSL exception)
imaplib2 v2.57 (bundled), Python v2.7.13, OpenSSL 1.1.0f 25 May 2017
Account sync Test:
PySocks not installed, ignoring proxy option.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
offlineimap 7.1.2-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon
