<? php

namespace App\Mail;
   
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
  
class GmailTestMail extends Mailable{

    use Queueable, SerializesModels;

    public $user;

    public function __construct($user){

        $this->user = $user;

    }

    public function build(){

        return $this->subject('This is gmail testing')
                    ->view('emails.test');
    }
}

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>How To Send Mail Using Gmail In Laravel 9 - Websolutionstuff</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h5>{{ $user['name'] }}</h5>
    <p>{{ $user['info'] }}</p>
    <p>Thank you</p>
</body>
</html> 

 

Step 5: Create Route

In this step, we will create a route for sending emails.

routes/web.php

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

    $user = [
        'name' => 'Websolutionstuff',
        'info' => 'This is gmail example in laravel 9'
    ];

    \Mail::to('[email protected]')->send(new \App\Mail\GmailTestMail($user));

    dd("Successfully send mail..!!");

});
