Laravel 11 Send Email Example

Use the below given simple steps to send email using gmail smtp in Laravel 11 apps:

  • Step 1 – Install Laravel 11 App
  • Step 2 – Configuration SMTP in .env
  • Step 3 – Create Mailable Class
  • Step 4 – Create Send Mail Function in Route File
  • Step 5 – Create Email Template

Step 1 – Install Laravel 11 App

In step 1, install or download Laravel 11 application, so open terminal or command prompt and run the following command to install fresh Laravel 11 app:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2 – Configuration SMTP in .env

In step 2, configure gmail, aws, etc driver smtp details in .env file:

MAIL_USERNAME=Add your user name here
MAIL_PASSWORD=Add your password here

Note that:- Make sure you have to enable google security setting form your gmail. So, go to Google account and click on ‘Account’. Once you are on the ‘Account’ page, click on ‘Security’. Scroll down to the bottom and you will find ‘Less secure app access’ settings. Set as ON.

Step 3 – Create Mailable Class

In step 3, create new mailable class for send email in laravel. So, run the following command on terminal:

php artisan make:mail NotifyMail

Then navigate to app/Mail directory and open NotifyMail.php file. And the following code into it:

namespace App\Mail;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
class NotifyMail 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('emails.demoMail');

Note that, you will create an email template with any name. That you want to send. But most important thing do not forget to add createed email template on NotifyMail class. Like following:

    return $this->view('');
    return $this->view('emails.demoMail'); 

Step 4 – Create Send Mail Function in Route File

In this step, navigate routes directory and gopen /web.php, Then implement send email route function.

I have already implement this function. So, you can add the following routes for send email in web.php file:

use Mail;

Route::get('send-email', function () {
	  Mail::to('receiver-email-id')->send(new NotifyMail());

	  if (Mail::failures()) {
	      echo "Email not send";
	      echo "Email has been sent";


Step 5 – Create Email Template

In this step, create directory name emails inside resources/views directory.

After that, navigate inside this direcotry and create an demoMail.blade.php blade view file inside it. Then add the following email template code into it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
 <title>Laravel 11 Send Email Example</title>
 <h1>This is first email in Laravel 11</h1>
 <p>Hello,  Laravel Developer</p>
