Profiles when going from a workgroup to a domain, and vice-versa

This is my first post here. Please excuse my ignorance.

We are always deploying AD Domains in Win2k Server. Typically, we have to recreate the profile, and move .pst's or Outlook Express Message Stores manually. We like to keep the user oblivious to the fact that something has changed.

Most of our users are using either Outlook or Outlook Express with POP3 accounts. It seems that after we move the user/workstation to a domain we always have to go looking for the original Office 2000 CD, since it seems to be real particular about the version (Professional, Premium, Standard, etc) that the .msi uses.

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding how to migrate users and profiles to a domain, or remove them from a domain in a more streamline manner?

Thanks!
Shane

Have you tried the Copy To function under User Profiles (right click on my computer, go to properties, select advanced tab, choose user profiles)? Copying from their old profile to their new profile?

The above stated method is what I used when we went to a new domain. Make sure you are logged in as an admin and give permissions to the "new user" to use the "old profile". If you are moving from one domain to another like I had to do then make sure there is a trust between the 2 domains until you can copy over profiles. If there is no trust, then profiles from the old domain will show as "account unknown" in the user profile list and this copy to feature will be unavailable.
