php artisan make:controller MailGunController

Next,We are add mail function in MailGunController.php file so add this way :


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
use Mail;

class MailGunController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index()
        $user = User::find(1)->toArray();

        Mail::send('mailView', $user, function($message) use ($user) {
