Postfix Maildir

sudo postconf -e "home_mailbox = Maildir/"

How do I properly assign the default mailbox location to a mounted hard drive named "Mailboxes"

I've tried several different ways, but I can't seem to get the path correct

home_mailbox is for setting a path within each local user's home directory, so I don't think you can use it to put mailboxes into an arbitrary path. You would either need to set up the user's home directories on your "Mailboxes" drive, or set up Virtual Domain Hosting.
