IIS 7 - Using Url Rewrites and then redirecting "everything else"

I want to redirect certain pages from one site to certain other pages on our other site. Then I want to redirect everything that is left to one page on the other site.

I can use the http redirect to send the whole site over OR I can use URL Rewite to send certain pages to the other site's pages but I can't figure out how to do the "everything else" part.

Here's what I have so far. This wil redirect individual pages. When I added an http redirect, that takes precedence and the whole thing goes to newsite.com
              <rewrite>
            <rewriteMaps>
              <rewriteMap name="NewSite 301 Redirects">
                <add key="/contact.aspx" value="http://www.newsite.com/ContactUs.aspx" />
              </rewriteMap>
            </rewriteMaps>
            <rules>
                <rule name="Rewrite rule1 for NewSite 301 Redirects">
                    <match url=".*" />
                    <conditions>
                        <add input="{NewSite 301 Redirects:{REQUEST_URI}}" pattern="(.+)" />
                    </conditions>
                    <action type="Redirect" url="{C:1}" appendQueryString="false" />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>

I always add Rewrite via the GUI. I can see from the GUI side that there is the option to run a rule where the "pattern does not match"

My thinking here would go something like

Contact Rule (contact.aspx)
Next rule (next.aspx)
...

All other rule (NOT match contact.aspx) Do something else...

Would this work?
