301 non-www to www except for one directory
Need to let requests for one directory pass through without redirecting

We've recently migrated our website technology to a new platform and have set up a CNAME record to point www.example.com to the new server.

The A record for example.com points at our old server and we use the following .htaccess to redirect requests for example.com to the new site.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

We'd like requests for example.com/images to pass through without any 301 redirects though. Can anyone give me pointers on how to modify our .htaccess to accomplish this?

Place this condition ahead of the existing ruleset:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/images
