I need to change the domain a person is signing on to, but retain all the program menus, Outlook settings, etc. The person has a notebook and runs most of their software ocally, only wants access to the new network for prinitng, file storage and file saving. When I just changed the configuration, a whole new profile was created losing all the Outlook and program profiles. Is there a way to save or extract the info and import into the new profile.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are running Win2000 or XP you can right click on My Computer and choose Properties (or go click on the System icon in the Control Panel). In XP you click on the Advanced tab and chose User Profiles. Click on the old profile and choose Copy To. Browse to Documents and Settings folder and highlight the recently created folder. Then make sure to give his new domain profile rights to access the folder. Click OK and hit OK on the warning message. When it is done his/her new profile will be exactly like his/her old one.
