A minus sign serves as a not

  • To search for all messages in the inbox -> label:inbox
  • To search for unread in the inbox -> label:inbox is:unread
  • To search for unread messages without stars in the inbox-> -is:starred label:inbox is:unread

The search you want is for "Unread Everything Else"

-is:important label:inbox is:unread 

or just "Everything Else"

-is:important label:inbox
