find replace text in sql 2005 database

I have a db that I need to find /replace some email addresses.  In my example, lets say the db name is db1, the name of the table is dbo.people, and the field is email.  I need to change all email addresses that contain @example.com to @ test.org.

What type of sql statement do I have to make to make this update?

Please try this code

UPDATE db1.dbo.people
SET email = STUFF(email, CHARINDEX('@example.com',email , 1), LEN('@example.com'), '@test.org')
WHERE email LIKE '%@example.com'
