You map the offending websites to the localhost, using the hosts file. That will at least take care of pono sites you know by URL.

Blocking download of file types like mpeg, avi, etc will be a little more interesting. I'd say you'll need to do your own research, and possibly your own programming, to accomplish that.

I don't know a program called 'mailscanner', but guessing from its name, it sounds like a good part of a secure system.

Best of luck.
