Now you will find the file in this location app/Mail/TestMail.php


namespace App\Mail;

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

class TestMail 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('mail.Test_mail');



Step 3 : Create Blade File

Now, we will create the Test_mail.blade.php file in this path view/mail/Test_mail.blade.php
