I'm trying to use the reminders app to send a Gmail email through IFTTT.

I looked into the authorization IFTTT has for Gmail and it appears that it does not have the ability to send emails, so I think this might be the problem.

Has anyone troubleshooted this problem before and found a solution?

What is the "reminders app"? The Gmail channel most certainly has a send a message action. What, in particular, are you having trouble with? –  Al E. May 15 at 1:43

Assuming you're talking about the iOS Reminders channel, perhaps this recipe can be modified to your needs: Email your boss when you add reminders to your "Work" list. It uses the "New reminder added to list" trigger.

The Gmail channel does have a send email action, so I don't know why you seem to be having trouble. That said, there are a ton of other ways to send messages through IFTTT, including the generic email channel.
