searching imap mail folder but excluding one subfolder

I have code that searches under the default folder (inbox) but I would
like to modify it to search for everything in that folder with the
exception of one subfolder where I would like it not to search.

my current code is:

from imaplib import *
import getpass

server = IMAP4("")

server.login('username', getpass.getpass())

r ="Inbox")

for num in data[0].split():, '+FLAGS', '\\Deleted')

how do i modify it so that, for example, it searches in inbox but does
not search in a specific subfolder 'opim' under inbox?
