I have an .htaccess file that is working great:
RedirectMatch 301 (.*)\.html$ http://newsite.com

Open in new window

How could I exclude the directory "http://newsite.com/Intranet/" from the redirect?

Doesn't seem to be working.  For instance, http://originalsite.com does not redirect and http://originalsite.com/Intranet/ does redirect to http://newsite.com

OK, now we're moving in the right direction.  Same problem as original though, when I go to the original site, such as :

http://www.originalsite.com/Intranet

It goes to blueappleproperties.com.  I did make sure the "I" was capitalized.

You can ignore case by changing to

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/intranet [NC]

But I'm confused, when I go to this page I get a 404 - so it is not redirecting which I assume is correct
http://www.originalsite.com/intranet/

Edit
Actually with the capital I - I get the login form, you may need to clear your browser cache, especially if it is FF
