How to send mail in Laravel 8

In this article we will learn how to send mail in Laravel 8

Follow the below steps to send mail in laravel.

 

Step 1- Mail Configuration

In step first, we have to set  mail configuration settings with mail driver in  .env file like below example.

.env

MAIL_MAILER=smtp
MAIL_HOST=smtp.gmail.com
MAIL_PORT=465
MAIL_USERNAME=edu.teknowize@gmail.com  #sender email id
MAIL_PASSWORD=xyz@12                   #sender email password
MAIL_ENCRYPTION=ssl
MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=edu.teknowize@gmail.com
MAIL_FROM_NAME="Teknowize"             #your app name 

 

Step 2 – Create Male Class

In second step we will create TestMail class  for mail sending. 

Go to your terminal  and simply run this below command.

php artisan make:mail TestMail

Output

Step 3 –Make controller 

Create a new MailController.php controller

php artisan make:controller MailController

 

app \Http \Controllers\ MailController.php

<?php  
namespace App\Http\Controllers; 
use App\Mail\TestMail;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Mail; 
class MailController extends Controller

{
    function send_mail(){

        $email_id = 'edu@teknowize.com';
        $msg = [
            'title' => 'Hello! from Teknowize',
            'body' => 'This is my test mail in Laravel 8'
        ];
        Mail::to($email_id)->send(new TestMail($msg));
        return' Mail send successfuly to '.$email_id ; 
    }
}

 

Step 4 – Create Route

routes\web.php

<?php 
use App\Http\Controllers\MailController;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
*/  
Route::get('send_mail', [MailController::class, 'send_mail']);

 

 

Step 5 – Create message template 

In this step, open your resources/views folder then create a Email folder then create mail.blade.php in  Email folder.

You can also create blade page in resources/views without making any folder.

 

resources \views \Email \mail.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>{{ $msg['title'] }}</h1>
    <p>{{ $msg['body'] }}</p>
    <a href="https://www.teknowize.com/"><button style="background:blue;color:whitesmoke">Learn More</button></a>
    <p>Thank you!</p> 
</body>
</html>  

 

Step 6- Go to gmail account security then click on the less secure app access setting. If this  is On then skip this step otherwise On this setting

Step 7open testmail.php and pass the message you have in MailController 

in mail.blade.php file like below example.

 

app\Mail\TestMail.php

<?php 
namespace App\Mail;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels; 
class TestMail extends Mailable
{
    use Queueable, SerializesModels;
    public $msg;
    /**
     * Create a new message instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct($msg)
    {
        $this->msg = $msg;
    }
    /**
     * Build the message.
     *
     * @return $this
     */
    public function build()
    {
        return $this->subject('Test Mail From Teknowize')->view('Email/mail');
    }
}
