How do I do a seo friendly redirect.

I don't think you can do a 301 from dotmac

no access to .htaccess

any thoughts?

I don't think there's any better way to do this than to use a meta refresh tag to forward users, and a link on the page for the search engines to follow.

(Bump.) Anyone know a better way?

I agree with timster. Yahoo at least will consider an 0 second meta refresh as a 301 redirect.
