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?

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
