sub filter {
    my($entity, $fname, $ext, $type) = @_;

... then $type contains the value of the Content-Type header, and
you could so something like...

    if ($type =~ /text.html/i) {
        return action_bounce("HTML mail not accepted");

You're going to reject a lot of mail. I wouldn't do this even just
for myself.
