    except (for), (to)?

    Hello,
    I'm wondering if I can use except without a for, or a to in this sentence
    Hello all, except Jim!
    Hello all, except for Jim!
    Hello all, except to Jim!


    Is the 1st version already correct?

    Cheers!

    Yes, they are all equally correct and offensive to Jim.

    Hello all, except to Jim! This one sounds odd to me.
    You could say 'Hello to all, except Jim.'
