the gateway address of S1 to G2. That really works regarding the FTP part,
but regarding my mail it is not (logically I am now presenting a domain
name that doesn't match its ip address as it is G2 instead of G1).

If your fast gateway has a proxy feature, it is very easy, only have to
declare the env variable HTTP_PROXY and FTP_PROXY to point to that proxy.

Hopee that helps.
