IIS 7 Rewrite to move a domain

I am using Server 2008 R2 to host some website.  Everything is good but I have multiple domains connecting to one site.  Now Google is indexing my site using a domain I do not want it to use.  So lets say I have the following:
www.myoldsite.com
www.newsite.com
www.licplate.com

I want Google to use www.newsite.com and not the others.  However Google is indexing with www.myoldsite.com now.  I can easily create new sites for each of the two sites that need to be redirected then create some 301 redirects.  However, to do this for each page would be a pain.  The only difference would be the domain name.  So for example if somebody went to www.myoldsite.com\contactus.php I want to do a 301 redirect to www.newsite.com\contactus.php.

I just want the domain name section changed.  It would also be good to do this with or without the www. in front of the domain name.  Can I do this with URL Rewrite?  If so how to a create these rules?

The canonical rule should do the trick as described in #3:

Do you think this would cause any problems with SEO?  Not sure if this uses 301 redirect which is recommended.

The redirect type in the rule is permanent which is a 301.  If it were temporary it would be a 302.
