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.




MAIL_USERNAME[email protected]  #sender email id

MAIL_PASSWORD[email protected]12                   #sender email password


MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS[email protected]

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



Step 3 –Make controller 

Create a new MailController.php controller

 php artisan make:controller MailController

app \Http \Controllers\ MailController.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 = '[email protected]';

        $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




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">


    <meta charset="UTF-8">

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">




<h1>{{ $msg['title'}}</h1>

    <p>{{ $msg['body'}}</p>

    <a href="">         <button style="background:blue;color:whitesmoke">Learn More</button></a>

    <p>Thank you!</p>




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.




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 QueueableSerializesModels;

    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');



Step 8- Run php artisan serve
