To send an email using Laravel, you first need to configure your mail settings in the .env file. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to send an email with Laravel:

  1. Install a driver for sending emails: Laravel supports several drivers for sending emails, such as SMTP, Mailgun, Mandrill, etc. You can configure the driver in the config/mail.php file.
  2. Create an email template: You can create an email template in the resources/views/emails directory. You can use Blade syntax in your email templates.
  3. Create a Mailable class: In Laravel, you can create Mailable classes to represent the email that you want to send. You can generate a Mailable class using the make:mail Artisan command: php artisan make:mail OrderShipped This will create a new Mailable class in the app/Mail directory.
  4. Customize the Mailable class: You can customize the Mailable class by adding the necessary data and formatting the email content. For example, you can set the subject and view for the email in the build method of the Mailable class.
  5. Send the email: You can send the email using the Mail facade in your controller or anywhere in your code. Here's an example of sending an email in a controller method: use AppMailOrderShipped; use IlluminateSupportFacadesMail; public function sendEmail() { $order = Order::find(1); Mail::to($order->email)->send(new OrderShipped($order)); } In this example, we are sending an email to the customer with the OrderShipped Mailable class.
  6. Test your email: You can test your email by triggering the controller method that sends the email. Make sure to check your email client to see if the email is delivered successfully.


That's it! You have successfully sent an email using Laravel.
