Roaming profiles

We are using outlook express on our Windows 2000 domain.  The problem is that when users move to other computers, their dbx files do not follow.  For instance, user A is using computer 1, pulls his email and deletes a couple of them.  Later that day, the same user goes to computer 2 and logs into the DOMAIN.  The problem is that the users email does not follow.  It stores the .dbx files on the local pc.
I tried to point it to the profile, but it is greyed out.
And when I go into the users profile onto the server, I see the dbx files saved.  Only problem is that they dont go with the profile.  Meaning, the dbx files dont follow the user when he goes on another PC.

Is there a setting for this????

Please help

Yes, the folder c:\documents and settings\username\local settings is generally excluded from roaming profiles.

Open your group policey on the domain or on a workstation run gpedit.msc
browse down through
User Confiugration->Administrative Templates-> System->User Profiles.
you can choose enable in this policey and leave it blank

If on the slim chance that doesn't work
c:\documents and settings\username\ntuser.ini
contains a list of excluede files
