You don't. Outlook defaults to My Documents but stays with the last folder accessed during the session, resetting to my docs when you restart outlook. Add the drives or folders you use most to the places bar. (I don't have a vista system running right now, but try right clicking on the places bar after browsing to the folder - what menu options do you have?)
