Workaround for sending emails on the echo dot

I came across this the other day from IFTTT (IFTHISTHENTHAT) website  which has a section on Amazon Alexa . You can connect gmail and then up to 4 emails to send an email from Shopping List on the echo – once setup just say “Add < what you want to say> to my Shopping List” it then sends to your designated emails. Useful for the blind!
