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

Step 2: Make Configuration

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

.env

[email protected]

MAIL_PASSWORD=rrnnucvnqlbsl

MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls

[email protected]

MAIL_FROM_NAME="${APP_NAME}"

Step 3: Add Route

In this is step we need to create routes for items listing. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\PDFController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('send-email-pdf', [PDFController::class, 'index']);

Step 4: Add Controller

class PDFController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

$data["email"] = "[email protected]";

$data["title"] = "From ItSolutionStuff.com";

$data["body"] = "This is Demo";

$files = [

public_path('files/160031367318.pdf'),

public_path('files/1599882252.png'),

];

Mail::send('emails.myTestMail', $data, function($message)use($data, $files) {

$message->to($data["email"], $data["email"])

->subject($data["title"]);

foreach ($files as $file){

$message->attach($file);

}

});

dd('Mail sent successfully');

}

}
