Step 1: Make Configuration

In first step, you have to add send mail configuration with mail driver as gmail server, mail host, mail port, mail username, mail password so laravel 8 will use those sender details on email. So you can simply add as like following.

.env

MAIL_DRIVER=smtp

MAIL_HOST=smtp.gmail.com

php artisan make:mail MyTestMail

app/Mail/MyTestMail.php

<?php

namespace App\Mail;

use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;

use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;

use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;

class MyTestMail extends Mailable

{

use Queueable, SerializesModels;

public $details;

/**

* Create a new message instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function __construct($details)

{

$this->details = $details;

}

/**

* Build the message.

*

* @return $this

*/

public function build()

{

return $this->subject('Mail from ItSolutionStuff.com')

->view('emails.myTestMail');

}

}

Step 3: Create Blade View

In this step, we will create blade view file and write email that we want to send. now we just write some dummy text. create bellow files on "emails" folder.

resources/views/emails/myTestMail.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title>ItsolutionStuff.com</title>

</head>

<body>

<h1>{{ $details['title'] }}</h1>

<p>{{ $details['body'] }}</p>

<p>Thank you</p>

</body>

</html>

Step 4: Add Route

Now at last we will create "MyTestMail" for sending our test email. so let's create bellow web route for testing send email.

routes/web.php

Route::get('send-mail', function () {

$details = [

'title' => 'Mail from ItSolutionStuff.com',

'body' => 'This is for testing email using smtp'

];

\Mail::to('your_receiver_email@gmail.com')->send(new \App\Mail\MyTestMail($details));

dd("Email is Sent.");

});
