MAIL_HOST=smtp.gmail.com
MAIL_PORT=587
MAIL_USERNAME=Add your user name here

Mailable Class

We need to create mailable class for sending emails, use the below command :

php artisan make:mail MailNotify
<?php

namespace App\Mail;

use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;

class MailNotify extends Mailable
{
    use Queueable, SerializesModels;

    /**
     * Create a new message instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        //
    }

    /**
     * Build the message.
     *
     * @return $this
     */
    public function build()
    {
        return $this->view('view.name');
        //here is your blade view name
    }
}

Create Route & Blade View

We need to create route, open your routes/web.php in put the below route :

 Route::get('laravel-send-email', '[email protected]');

Next, we need to create email blade view file in views folder of view. Go to the resources/views/emails and create a view file name email.blade.php. Put bellow code:

 
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Laravel Send Email Example</title>
</head>
<body>

<h1>This is test mail from Tutsmake.com</h1>
<p>Thank you, {{ $user->name }}</p>

</body>
</html>

Create Controller & Method

We need to create new controller EmailController that will manage one method. lets use this below command and create Controller.

php artisan make:controller EmailController

Now open the controller let’s go to the => app/Http/Controllers/EmailController.php. Put the below Code

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Redirect,Response,DB,Config;
use Mail;
class EmailController extends Controller
{
    public function sendEmail()
    {
      $user = auth()->user();
      Mail::to($user)->send(new MailNotify($user));

      if (Mail::failures()) {
           return response()->Fail('Sorry! Please try again latter');
      }else{
           return response()->success('Great! Successfully send in your mail');
         }
    }
}

Start Development Server

In this step, we will use the php artisan serve command . It will start your server locally

php artisan serve

If you want to run the project diffrent port so use this below command

php artisan serve --port=8080

Now we are ready to run our example so run bellow command to quick run.
