No, should be tls=immediate to negotiate encryption
immediately on connection. You could add tls=stls and the
certificate names to the normal listen-address
specifications too, so that clients can negotiate
encryption if they want it.

Almost. You need to add an
  auth-perl-onlogin: name_of_function
statement so that tpop3d actually runs the bulletins
function at login time.
