IIS 7 URL Redirects

Windows server 2008 r2 / IIS 7.0

I have a few thousand property listings pages that are indexed by search engines,
here is an example url: http://www.mysite.com/12345/123-myStreet-myCity-myState.html

I need to redirect to: http://www.mysite.com/A12345/123-myStreet-myCity-myState.html

As my Listing ID numbers will soon be updated to prepend an "A".

 Is this possible to do this without manually writing a redirect for each individual page?

Thanks!

There's a url re-write utility that you can install to accomplish this.  

Here's a walkthrough on how to use it:
http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module/url-rewrite-module-video-walkthrough

Essentially download and install the module, then you'll be able to configure a rule to append the A in your link.

I believe this back reference will achieve your goal:

                <rule name="Redirect" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="^12345$|^12345/(.*)" />
                    <action type="Redirect" url="A12345/{R:1}" appendQueryString="true" />
                </rule>

   <conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.site1\.com$" />
