Logged in as administrator. I copy a user's My documents, Favorites, and Desktop to another user account on the same computer except this user in on the domain.  When I log off and log in as the user I configure the email, and set up shortcuts for that person.  Then I log off and log back in the the very same account the email configuration and the shortcuts I placed on the desktop disappear.  What have I done wrong, and why is it doing this?

While logged on as admin, right Click on my computer, click manage, go to local users and groups, groups, select "users"  and add the username.

Make the user at least a user on the computer.  Since there is no account for the user he gets the default guest permissions which really doesn't let you do anything.

if its a member of the domain then its a member of that group by default...are you sure there is no mandatory profiles set on that machine? or a roaming profile? Check the user account in AD
