The 127.0.0.1 is your machine's loopback address. Many email spam filters run a small server/filter that acts as an intermediary that intercepts your email and tags them so your email program can catagorize them appropriately.
I am guessing you did not setup the spamfilter....?
The question is, what do you want to do? Use the spam filter? Get rid of it?

It depends on what put it there. In addition to your spam filter, certain web filters use this setting to screen out ads and popups.
Generally speaking, people who have that setting are aware of it (both in email and Internet Settings--the setting is not the same, btw, the one prime is referring to is for the browser, the one in your email spam filter is not shared--or at least not shared by the programs I have seen, which isn't an all inclusive list.)
I am reluctant to have people remove that setting unless I can see what is going on.
