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

class MailNotify 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->view('');
        //here is your blade view name

Create Route & Blade View

We need to create a route, open your routes/web.php input the below route :

 Route::get('laravel-send-email', '[email protected]');

Next, we need to create an email blade view file in views folder of view. Go to the resources/views/emails and create a view file name email.blade.php. Put bellow code:

<!DOCTYPE html>

 <h1>This is test mail from</h1>
 <p>Thank you, {{ $user->name }}</p>

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Redirect,Response,DB,Config;
use Mail;
class EmailController extends Controller
    public function sendEmail()
      $user = auth()->user();
      Mail::to($user)->send(new MailNotify($user));

      if (Mail::failures()) {
           return response()->Fail('Sorry! Please try again latter');
           return response()->success('Great! Successfully send in your mail');
