How To Send Mail Using Sendgrid In Laravel

SendGrid is a popular cloud-based email delivery platform that allows you to send emails from your application. Laravel, a powerful PHP framework, has built-in support for SendGrid which simplifies the process of sending emails. In this blog post, we will walk you through the steps on how to configure and send emails using SendGrid in Laravel.


Before getting started, make sure you have the following:

  • Laravel application (you can create one using the laravel new command)
  • SendGrid account (create a free account from the SendGrid website)

Step 1: Install SendGrid PHP Library

The first step is to install the SendGrid PHP library in your Laravel project. You can do this via composer using the following command:

composer require sendgrid/sendgrid

Step 2: Configure SendGrid

After installing the SendGrid PHP library, the next step is to configure SendGrid. In your .env file, set the following variables:


Replace your_sendgrid_api_key with your actual SendGrid API key and your_email_address with the email address you want to send emails from.

Step 3: Create Mailable

In Laravel, emails are sent using mailables. Let’s create a new mailable called SendMail. You can create a new mailable using the following artisan command:

php artisan make:mail SendMail

Step 4: Send Email

Now that we’ve created our mailable, let’s use it to send an email. In your chosen controller, you can use the Mail::send method to send an email:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Mail;
use App\Mail\SendMail;

public function sendEmail()
    $details = [
        'title' => 'Mail from SendGrid in Laravel',
        'body' => 'This is for testing email using SendGrid in Laravel'

    Mail::to('your_receiver_email_address')->send(new SendMail($details));

Replace your_receiver_email_address with the email address you want to send the email to.


That’s it! You’ve now configured SendGrid in your Laravel app and can send emails using SendGrid. With this setup, you can now easily send emails from your Laravel application, whether it’s for user registration confirmation, password reset, or any other scenario where email sending is needed.
