Welcome to the OneBridge for iPhone Beta newsgroup.



Sybase iAnywhere has established this newsgroup to assist you during your
OneBridge for iPhone Beta Program. OneBridge extends enterprise email (Lotus
Domino or Microsoft Exchange) and applications to more than 250 mobile
devices.



Sybase iAnywhere employees monitor this newsgroup on a regular basis to help
with any questions you may have. We also hope that you will take the time to
respond to questions that you feel comfortable answering.



Reporting Issues

While you are welcome to report issues/concerns on the newsgroup, we have a
short survey to report specific issues to our Quality Assurance team. Please
use this link to report issues and feedback during the beta:

the end of the beta program.

Newsgroup Guidelines



The purpose of this Newsgroup is to exchange problems and solutions
concerning the use of Sybase iAnywhere's OneBridge for iPhone Beta Program.



To ensure that we all receive the greatest benefit from this forum, we have
a few guidelines concerning its use:



1. Don't hesitate to ask simple questions. People get a sense of
accomplishment when they can answer them.



2. Some people practice Cyberspace Triage:

There's too much to read so they make snap decisions about what to skip.
These busy people are sometimes the ones you WANT to read your questions, so
govern yourself accordingly.



- Put separate questions in separate messages. Some people skip messages
with more than one question.



- Use meaningful Subject headers, not vague descriptions like "Help!" or
"Urgent!". Some people only read messages with subjects that interest them,
and meaningful subjects also help folks who are browsing the newsgroups.



- Start each message with "How do I [do some specific task or solve some
specific problem]?". Some people skip messages that don't start with a
question. Put supporting information AFTER the initial question.



- Be patient. If you don't get an answer in 48 hours, try rewording your
question and posting it again.



Keep this in mind: Very busy people in very busy newsgroups sometimes don't
read any messages that already have replies. They figure the questions
already have been answered. If you don't get a helpful reply within 48
hours, try posting it again.



- Don't reply to a question unless you're fairly sure you know the
answer--unless, of course, no one else has replied for two days or more,
then feel free to take a guess. But if you immediately reply with a
content-free message, you may create a victim of Cyberspace Triage!



3. If you have sample code, don't edit it, just copy and paste the real
thing. When you edit or re-type code, two bad things can happen:



(1) you might introduce new errors that will confuse the reader



(2) you might remove the real problem without knowing it. However,
everything you post to these newsgroups will be available for the whole
world to read, forever, so be careful with secret stuff. Don't post customer
support ID's, passwords or even database server IP addresses.



4. If you are getting an error message, post the exact text of the message.



5. Newsgroups and email work together:



- If you are really happy with an answer, send a "Thank You" via email.



Please don't post "Thank You" messages in the newsgroup. The same applies to
personal messages: end them by email.



Exception: Sometimes it's OK to post a "Yes, it worked!" reply in the
newsgroup. It may be helpful to others, especially if there was some doubt
in the original reply: "Try this, but I'm not sure if it will help."



- When posting a question in a newsgroup don't ask "Please reply by email".



Other people may benefit from the reply, and the public nature of newsgroups
is one of their main benefits.



- Don't ask your original question by email either--same reason.



6. Post plain text messages only! Don't include HTML tags or strange MIME
types... if you can't type it in Notepad, don't post it. That's because many
people read your messages in ASCII text format and the other stuff gets in
the way. Also, please don't use signature files.



- Don't attach any documents or files: no EXE files, no Word documents, no
UUENCODED text. And don't open or execute any attachments to other peoples'
messages. Viruses and worms lurk there!



7. Don't post the same question in more than one newsgroup at once.



8. Never post advertisements in technical newsgroups. The system operators
reserve the right to remove all inappropriate messages.



9. Don't use profanity, obscenities or racist remarks.



10. Please use your real name, not an alias. If you want to avoid having
your email address added to spam lists, just code it like
bmilton__NOSPAM@i.com in the Free Agent options. That way automated
newsgroup crawlers will pick up an invalid address but real human beings can
still figure out how to send you email.



11. When replying to a message, don't quote the entire contents of the
original message. Just include enough to let the reader know what you're
replying to. Put your reply ahead of the quoted stuff. That way, people
don't have to scroll down to see new material.
