Hi Experts

I have a new server with a domain introduced into a firm of users currently without a domain. I would like to get them all hooked up to use the functions of the server, file sharing, printing & a central accounting system without them having to log onto the domain as it recreates their user profile within windows when means resetting up email settings & personalisation etc. I am not being lazy but simply want to avoid too much disruption

Do I simply have to join them to the domain and then let them carry on logging into their local machine in order to use the features of SBS or is the whole point of a domain having users log in directly ?
