Step 1

Please change the following variables in this guide:

Sender Name: the sender’s name.

Recipient Name: the recipient’s name.

recipient@example.com: the recipient’s email address.

USERNAME: your SMTP username.

Step 2

Make changes to the configuration file app/config/mail.php as below. For a secure TLS connection, you can also try using Port Number 25, 8025 or 587.

return array(
'driver' => 'smtp',
'host' => 'mail.smtp2go.com',
'port' => 2525,
'from' => array('address' => 'sender@example.com', 'name' => 'Sender Name'),
'encryption' => 'tls',
'username' => 'USERNAME',
'password' => 'PASSWORD',
'sendmail' => '/usr/sbin/sendmail -bs',
'pretend' => false,

Here the example at Mail::send() method, is a view file located at app/views/ folder. A sample content of the app/views/example.php view file looks like below:
