The mailboxes have not moved.  The M: drive is just a 'view' of the
mailboxes in a form you are familiar with.  (search for Exchange Installible
File System (IFS) for more)
 
The mailboxes remain in the information store(s) in Exchange, typically
priv1/edb/priv1.stm.
 
I'd like to know what you are trying to accomplish to give you a better
answer.  The M: drive is not intended as a mechanism for simple
administration.  Mailbox properties are viewable through Exchange System
Manager.  The contents are viewable with Outlook/OWA.

William,
 
Where exactly are all the mailboxes stored..and i'm referring to the
individual mailboxes that you would see if you go into the M drive and
inside the 'mbx' folders....

Exchange 2003 does not eliminate the M: drive completely.  It's hidden by
default.
 
The mailboxes are all stored where they were in Exchange 2000.

Hi all,
 
In Exchange 2000, you can view the contents of the M drive and see all the
mailboxes. Exchange 2003 eliminates the M drive completely, but can someone
tell me where all the mailboxes are stored now? thanks.
