Step 2: Create Mail Setup

Create mail file SendEmailDemo using run below command in your terminal.

php artisan make:mail SendEmailDemo

 

Now you will find new Mail folder in app directory with SendEmailDemo.php file. So copy below code on this file.

app/Mail/SendEmailTest.php

<?php

namespace App\Mail;

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

class SendEmailDemo 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->subject('Test Mail using Queue in Larvel 8')            
            ->view('email.demo');
    }
}

 

After that we need to create email view using blade file.So,we will create demo.blade.php following path.

resources/views/email/demo.blade.php

Now, we will configuration of view file, we have to setup for email send, So let' set configuration in .env file.

MAIL_MAILER=smtp
MAIL_HOST=smtp.mailtrap.io
MAIL_PORT=2525
MAIL_USERNAME=xxxx
MAIL_PASSWORD=xxxx
MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls
MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=null
MAIL_FROM_NAME="${APP_NAME}"

 

Step 3: Configuration of Queue

Now, we are setup configuration on queue driver so first of all, we will set queue driver "database". You can set as you want also we will define driver as redis too. So here define database driver on .env file.

QUEUE_CONNECTION=database

After that we need to generate migration and create tables for queue. So let's run below command for queue database tables.

php artisan queue:table

Now, run migration in your terminal.

php artisan migrate

 

Step 4: Create Queue Job

In this step we will create new queue job So, copy below command in your termianal.

php artisan make:job SendEmailJob

 

As of now you will find SendEmailJob.php file in this path app/Jobs/SendEmailJob.php. So, copy below code in that location.

<?php

namespace App\Jobs;

use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Bus\Dispatchable;
use Illuminate\Queue\InteractsWithQueue;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
use App\Mail\SendEmailDemo;
use Mail;

class SendEmailJob implements ShouldQueue
{
    use Dispatchable, InteractsWithQueue, Queueable, SerializesModels;
    protected $send_mail;
    /**
     * Create a new job instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct($send_mail)
    {
        $this->send_mail = $send_mail;
    }

    /**
     * Execute the job.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function handle()
    {
        $email = new SendEmailDemo();        
        Mail::to($this->send_mail)->send($email);
    }
}

 

Step 5: Test Queue Job

Now , we will test our queue job. add below code in your web.php file

Route::get('test/email', function(){
  
	$send_mail = '[email protected]';
  
    dispatch(new App\Jobs\SendEmailJob($send_mail));
  
    dd('send mail successfully !!');
});

 

 

Now, clear config cache using below command for send mail with queue laravel 7/8.

php artisan config:clear

Now, run this laravel 7/8 queue example with artisan command.

php artisan serve

 

Finally, we are able to run this queue example.you will get result like below images.
