use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;

use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;

class MyDemoMail extends Mailable

{

*

* @return void

*/

public function __construct($details)

/**

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Mail\MyDemoMail;

use Mail;

class HomeController extends Controller

{

/**

* Show the application dashboard.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Contracts\Support\Renderable

*/

public function myDemoMail()

{

$myEmail = 'aatmaninfotech@gmail.com';

$details = [

'title' => 'Mail Demo from ItSolutionStuff.com',

'url' => 'https://www.itsolutionstuff.com'

];

Mail::to($myEmail)->send(new MyDemoMail($details));

dd("Mail Send Successfully");

}

}

Step 5: Add View File

In last step, we will create email template file, so first create "emails" folder in your resources folder and create myDemoMail.blade.php file and put bellow code.

resources/views/emails/myDemoMail.blade.php

@component('mail::message')

# {{ $details['title'] }}

The body of your message.

@component('mail::button', ['url' => $details['url']])
