    RPs copy the entire profile to a server on logoff and back to the client on logon (OK, some caching is involved), so all settings should be applied.
    Redirection stores some folders centrally, but not all the user settings.
    You can use both to reduce the amount of data to be copied.

        IMHO Roaming Profiles are heavy on network usage and usually overkill. Folder Redirection is fine for most smaller networks and you could modify the Group Policy to include Desktop Redirection to let the users at least feel as if they are always on the same machine. Outllok profiles are a diferrent proposition however. Since, by default, the OL profile uses Exchange Cached Mode, do you really want 2GB offline files on every machine for every user? I prefer to keep Exchange Cached Mode on the users "main" machine and not on others. OWA is another option.
