In a puzzeling reverse 'Robin Hood' move facebook have made a terrible step toward stealing millions of pounds from your pockets and putting it directly in the accounts of other businesses! How? Simply by defaulting your phone app into downloading potentially massive amounts of data so pushing you well over your data plan limit.
Here is how it works according to the Facebook help page. You cannot stop these videos from playing on your mobile device but you can limit them to only appear while you're connected via WiFi by going to the application settings and selecting "Auto-Play Videos on WiFi Only."
The videos also play when you're browsing from your desktop computer too but thankfully there is an option in your settings for videos (bottom left) where you can disable the auto play. If you're logged in you can try clicking this link which should take you straight to it.
If, like me, you're still not happy with this annoyingly pushy approach to social media you can make use of the feedback form to provide valuable customer feedback.

I have built a little application to get SpamAssasin working with Mail Enable as the old SAPlugin.exe didn't seem to work for me. It's pretty simple and the source code is included so you can modify it however you desire. The features are:
Here's the config file to show how simple an applciation this is. Please note that SpamAssasin has a problem with long file names and spaces so it seems to be best to use the shortnames for its location.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<add key="SpamAssasinExe" value="C:\PROGRA~2\JAMSOF~1\SPAMAS~1\SPAMAS~1.EXE"/>
<add key="QuarantineDirectory" value="C:\Program Files (x86)\Mail Enable\Quarantine\Messages" />
<add key="DebugOutput" value="true"/>
You can download the application & source code from my projects page here.
