I use ssh tunnels to forward Android imap (port 143), smtp (port 25), 
and http proxying (port 3128) to my Fedora server, using this app:

http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ayal.SPT

The main gotcha is that each tablet needs its own dedicated ssh port, so 
that the office NAT/firewall/router can keep track of ssh sessions 
correctly. But that is easy to implement, for a handful of devices.

It works quite well for my needs.
