I have a user that has a service mailbox in addition to their mailbox.  I need the emails from the service mailbox (secondary to the users mailbox) to auto archive the mail in the inbox to a public folder.  

I have mail enabled the public folder, but not sure what to do next.

Use the Active Directory Users and Computers console and modify the service account.
In the "Exchange General" tab (you might need to select the "View / Advanced features" option in the console to show the exchange tabs) choose "Delivery Options".
In the "Delivery Options" window select the "Forward to" option and browse for your mail enabled PF (check the following picture):

Also select the "Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox" checkbox if you want the messages to arrive both to the mailbox and the PF.

Thats what I was trying to do but when I browse for the email address for the mail enabled public folder it cannot find it.  I tested the email address, I can email to it and the email shows up in the public folder.  I just can add it through Exchange General tab.

Strange... If it's mail enabled it should be visible in the Global Address List with the same name as the PF name.
