If anyone happens to be migrating from phpbb with SEO mod, you can do all your redirects with a simple php script and this plugin.

header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"); 

$actual_link = basename($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
$parts = explode('-',$actual_link);
if($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] == "/"){
	$redirect_url = "http://new.forum.url";
} else if(sizeof($parts) > 1){
	array_pop($parts); // remove the -t123.html
	$redirect_url = "http://new.forum.url/teleport/search?q=".implode("+", $parts);		
} else {
	$redirect_url = "http://new.forum.url";
header("Location: ".$redirect_url);
