Hi all,
   Prob a very quick one here. Client has the following site and would like a re-direct (IIS Server)

Previous - WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/oldsite
New         - WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/newsite

they want to include everything from after the old site as well:

Requested URL: Matches the Pattern
Using: Regular Expression
Pattern: ^oldsite

Action Type: Redirect
Redirect URL: /newsite/
Redirect type: Permanent (301)
