How do I change a local profile to a domain profile?

I have machines that  have user accounts set up but also belong to a domain. If a user logs onto the machine account there profile has email and working desktop. If they log onto the domain they have no access to there email and working desktop. How do I change their machine profile to the domain so when they log onto the domain it contains the same profile as the machine???
