php artisan make:mail MyMail

In this file, we will write code for which view should call and the object of the user.


namespace App\Mail;

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

class MyMail 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 Coders Vibe')

Step-4: Create Blade view to design your email layout

In this step, we will create a blade file and design layout that we want to send. Now we just write some dummy text to show you as an example you can design as per your requirements. Create the below file view folder.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <h1>{{ $details['title'] }}</h1>
    <p>{{ $details['body'] }}</p>
    <p>Thank you</p>

Step-5: Create Route in route/web.php file

Now at the end, we will create a route for sending our mail. So, let's create the below web route for testing and send an email.

Route::get('send-mail', function () {
    $details = [
        'title' => 'Mail from',
        'body' => 'This is your first mail using smtp'
    \Mail::to('[email protected]')->send(new \App\Mail\MyMail($details));
    dd("Email is Sent.");

You can do it in a controller like this


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Mail\QueryMail;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Mail;

class MailController extends Controller
    public function sendmail(){

        $details = [
            'title' => 'Mail from',
            'body' => 'This is your first mail using smtp'

        Mail::to('[email protected]')->send(new QueryMail($details));
        dd('Mail Sent');

and then the route will be just in one line like this:

Route::get('send-mail', [MailController::class,'sendmail']);

Now you can run and check this example.

It will send your email, just run the following command and go to the following route.

Run Project:
