How to use IIS7.5 to rewrite only selected urls

We've just migrated to a Windows 2008 IIS7.5 server from IIS 6.0 and need to confirm how to set up url rewrites through IIS.

We want any subdomain that isn't "mail." or "secure." or that comes in as an IP address to be rewritten to www.oursites.com.
site IP associated with that subdomain but anything that came in as:


would all be rewritten as

The easiest way to do this would be to create a virtual site in IIS that has host headers for all of your URLs that you want rewritten.  Then simply redirect all requests to the site preserving the path and query string.

Assuming you have installed HTTP Redirect, you would then do a redirect on the virtual site with the host headers that need to be rewritten to something like:

I want everything but mail.mysite.com/(all paths) and secure.mysite.com/(all paths) to go to www.mysite.com/(all paths), is that applicable for that?

To be clear, sykesjs' solution would work for the issue as you have described it.  I happen to think this is better addressed with the rewriting module, but six of one, half-dozen of the other.
