    My google-fu is failing me and I come to you on bended knee asking for help.

    I am migrating a MovableType v4.0 blog to WP 3.0.1 on a new host.

    I need to redirect the old MT URLs to the new site but am having problems finding any recent advice on how to do this.

    I want that URL to redirect to the WP 3.0.1 install, but I don't see an automated way to do this. The blog has 5000+ posts so this is a non-trivial task to attempt manually.

    Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
