Email settings mysteriously changed (!)

I have changed ISP's and am in the process of sorting out my email addresses. Currently I have addresses spanning four different ISP's three of which have their own Dialler progs. In the course of this change over something has changed the incoming server from the original 'named server' to this: 127.0.0.1

This has had no effect on the performance of any of the email accounts but I'm just curious as to what's happened. Any ideas?

It's a default server name, probably to allow several different accounts to be accessed simultaneously.
