Send a Task to Someone
You're probably starting to get the idea that just about any record on your Treo can be sent to another device with little effort. Chapter 5, "Managing Treo Contacts," showed you how to send contacts using any of several delivery mechanisms, and "Send an Event to Someone" earlier in this chapter explained how to send events.

Keep in mind that because memos can be categorized like other types of PIM data, you can easily filter the memo list by using the pick list at the upper-right corner of the Memos screen. Beyond that, the Memos application is quite simple.
