How to Send Email in Laravel Using Sendinblue

Hi friends, today I will explain how to send email in laravel using Sendinblue email service provider. Sendinblue is very fast and smooth to send emails within a second. Actually, I am very disappointed about email sending via gmail smtp because Gmail often changes its policy. As you all know, earlier Gmail has a feature of less secure app access with ON and OFF.

If you ONN this feature then Gmail will allow you to receive emails in your inbox while sending emails through Gmail SMTP but if you OFF this feature then Gmail will not allow emails to enter your mailbox. But nowadays, this feature is not available in Gmail.

Aside, you can generate an app password from Gmail but that is also not working as expected. That is why I have used the Sendinblue email service provider. Sendinblue provides the facility to send 300 emails per day currently. In order to send emails using sendinblue you can follow the below steps.

Route::get('send-mail', [UploadFileController::class,'sendmail']);
Route::post('send-email', [UploadFileController::class,'sendemail']);

Step 7:- Now, create a controller using the below artisan command.

Step 7:- Now, create a mailable class using the artisan command as shown below.

Step 8:- Now, modify the MailController as given below.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Mail;
use App\Mail\myMail;

class MailController extends Controller
    public function sendmail()
      return view('sendmail');

    public function sendemail(){

        $details = [
            'title' => 'Mail from',
            'body' => 'Welcome to pbphpsolutions. We are now able to send email without gmail smtp server.'

        Mail::to('receivers email')->send(new myMail($details));
        //dd('Mail Sent');
        //return "Email sent successfully";
        return redirect('/send-mail')->with('success','Email has been sent successfully');

Step 9:- Now, modify myEmail.php as shown below.


namespace App\Mail;

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

class myMail extends Mailable
    use Queueable, SerializesModels;
    public $details;

     * Create a new message instance.
     * @return void
    public function __construct($details)
        $this->details = $details;

     * Build the message.
     * @return $this
    public function build()
        //return $this->view('');

        return $this->subject('Mail from PBPHPSOLUTIONS.COM')

Step 10:- Now, create a myMail.balde.php file under resources/views/mails/ as given below.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <p>{{ $details['title'] }}</p>
    <p>{{ $details['body'] }}</p>
    	<b><i>Thanx and Regards,</i></b><br>

Step 11:- Now, create another sendmail.blade.php file under resources/views as given below.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <!-- Required meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet">

    <title>Send email in Laravel using Sendinblue!</title>

  	<form method="post" action="/send-email">
  		<div class="container-fluid" style="width: 50%;">

			<div class="mb-3">
