How to change default folder when searching for attachments for emails?

Previously when I would attach a document to an email, Entourage would remember the last location searched for an attachment. (Helpful when there are multiple attachments).
Now, it seems to always default to the hard drive itself.
Has anyone else seen this before and know how to change back so that it remembers the most recently searched folder?
Thanks.

There is a setting in Default Folder that does exactly that. (See the attachment - note the checkbox for "Rebound to last selected file").  I find that to be one of its two most useful features.

The other useful feature is a bit hard to describe. I always find it difficult to drill down to deeply nested folders in open and save dialogue boxes. With default folder if you have the target folder open in Finder, all you have to do is open the Open and Save Dialogue box, then click on the target folder in Finder and the Open and Save Dialogue box immediately switches to the target folder.

Did you by any chance have a third party utility Default Folder installed? That is the only way that I know of of doing what you want. I couldn't live without it. Perhaps you had an older version which does not work with your current OS.

No hadn't installed this particular software before.
From what I can tell this software helps you choose a static folder to open for certain applications. What i'm trying to do is have the computer (I don't know if it's the OS or the application that governs this function...) remember the most recently searched folder in Entourage specifically.  This folder however will change so I wan't Entourage to remember this change and go to the newest folder.
Thanks!

Thanks for the tip on the application.  It works as advertised.  I don't know why the default behavior changed, but this effectively solves my problem.

Try the second feature I mentioned. Once you get used to it, you will love it.
