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[email protected]  #sender email id

MAIL_PASSWORD[email protected]12                   #sender email password

MAIL_ENCRYPTION=ssl

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.

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 = '[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

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 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');

    }

}
