Well, you can use scripts to display such message boxes or confirm boxes when an user clicks on those links to external pages..

For ex:

<a href="xyz.com" onClick="msg()">Click Here!! </a>
<script language="javascript>
function msg()
{
alert('this link redirects to an external page');
}
</script>

You may also use confirm box to display an yes or no kinda thing..

I'm not sure about that.. i think u can try this and see if it works..

window.onunload = function() {
    alert("You're leaving this page.");
};
