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???

you copy it.  
1) Login as the domain administrator to the desktop.
2) Right click MY COMPUTER and choose properties
3) Click the ADVANCED tab and then click SETTINGS next to USER PROFILES
4) HIGHLIGHT the local user profile that you want to copy.  Now click COPY TO  A new window will open...browse to the user's domain cached profile saved on the local PC:  c:\document and settings\bobdomain   On the permissions, give the domain user full permissions.
5) click OK to finalize...

login as the user.
