Rewrite rule exclusion problem

I am using a cms (eZ Publish) which requires all requested uri's to be passed through the index.php file to allow the creation of user friendly urls.  I have this portion of the rewrite rule working fine.  I would howver like to exclude certin uri's from the request.  Namely the /awstats directory for viewing websats and the /webmail directory for picking up web based email.  I am attempting to get the /awstats part working with the following rules:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/awstats.*
RewriteRule ^(.+) - [L]
RewriteRule !\.(gif|css|jpg|png|jar|jpeg|js|swf)$ /home/.sites/90/site11/web/index.php [L]

But only the last rule appears to be working, any changes to the condition and the first rule appear to have no affect.  Thanks in advance for any help.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(awstats|webmail)/.*$
RewriteRule !^(.*)\.(gif|css|jpg|png|jar|jpeg|js|swf)$ /home/.sites/90/site11/web/index.php [L]

I hope.

I got it working.  Here is what I used:

RewriteRule ^/awstats/(.*) - [PT,L]
RewriteRule ^/awstats-cgi/(.*) - [PT,L]
RewriteRule ^/webmail/(.*) - [PT,L]
RewriteRule ^/openwebmail-cgi/(.*) - [PT,L]
RewriteRule ^(.+)\.(gif|css|jpg|png|jar|jpeg|js|swf)$ - [PT,L]
RewriteRule ^(.+) /home/.sites/90/site11/web/index.php [T=application/x-httpd-php,L]

Hmmm.  The PT (=Pass Through) and L (=Last) options seem to be in conflict and it seems that it accepts L(ast) first. Change the [PT,L] into just [L]. You really ought to end your expressions with a $ sign. Whether you rewrite with identity or exclude with a condition (which is what you asked for in your question) is a matter of taste. The Identity rewrite is probably less cryptic, particularly if one added a bit of comment. In any event I'm glad it works.
