Is this on the Advanced tab when modifying the settings for an XMPP
account? If so, I believe this is an optional proxy server that can be
used to assist in sending or receiving a file, in the case where the
sender and receiver and unable to establish a connection directly to
each other e.g. due to both being behind firewalls or home routers.

I believe you can disable it by leaving the field empty (deleting the value).
