If you're able to hotsync, then yes. In the desktop, delete notes or other items (Does the TX have voice memos? Those would be a quick way to free up a lot of space!) Perform a hotsync, and your Palm should then have some free memory.
If you're not able to hotsync, then nothing you do in the Desktop will have any effect on the Palm.
But, I'm skeptical that this is the real problem. It sounds more like memory corruption, and a hard reset is going to be the real fix.
When a Palm OS device reboots like that, it shows that there is a driver conflict. Somewhere along the line some software that was installed is conflicting with other software on the device and causes the reset. I would suggest deleting applications from the device one by one and testing after each to see if the reset is still happening. If you are using the Palm Desktop software that came with the device and performed a Sync (backup) after you created the Memo... it should be saved and accessible in the Desktop software (Memo tab). If no Sync was performed after creating the Memo, you will need to remove applications one at a time until the software conflict is removed allowing you to run your device without the constant reboots. It's a bit of a tedious process, but the only solution if you didn't back up the device after creating the memo you are trying to retrieve.
You could delete that app if you want, however I would go into hotsync config and sync only one section at a time, such as Notes, but not contacts or calendar (or anything else). If it works then add a section, such as contacts. Keep adding sections until it malfunctions. Pimlico software makes a product dbfixit ($) that can fix database (blob errors). You can download and install it, and it will report on (but not fix) any errors it finds.
assuming that you use your palm tx on a windows xp system, files from the emails could be corrupted. are you using palm desktop or outlook?
if you are using palm desktop, you can rename the back-up folder to old and try to resync
First Try letting the battery drain out. Then only recharge partially. I know this doesn't make much sense, but I have the same problem and have tried ALL the known fixes...reboots galore. The only thing that allows me to use the device in any way is a partial charge. Again, a fully charge TX will reboot over and over and over
Try a reset first but you more likely a hard reset will take care of this but it will wipe your palm. Anything you have added since your last hotsync will be gone and there is no way to get it back.. After you do the reset the next hotsync should put your info and programs back on.
