Help with Serious redirect issues

  • More than a month ago moved to WordPress with a DB import of 9200 articles. Reading up on permalinks I decided to use %postname% as the best permalink structure for SEO.

    Traffic has gone from a steady 2500 pageviews a day to a steady 700 pageviews a day.
    Google bot has indexed the 9200 articles with the new structure.
    Google Tools shows 1000 server errors about /categorey and /authors.
    Google Tools also shows 350,000 urls not found, most seem to be /archives. It is now also showing a DNS error and refuses to crawl.

    This is the new permalink stucture google has successfully indexed

    I Bought my Wife a Lexus for Christmas

    This is the old permalink that most of the 9200 articles have out there.

    http://rackjite.com/archives/1043-I-Bought-my-Wife-a-Lexus-for-Christmas.html

    A simple .htaccess 301 access /archive does not work because of the number and the slash.
    Any advice or direction to help would be appreciated.
    Thanx

    Will changing the structure to follow the old urls help?
