arrow_back Catch All Sent Email & Show them on Laravel Application View

Laravel Web Mailer package contains a web mailer that will catch all the sent emails and show them on an application view in Laravel. Then, you can view it by visiting the route /web-inbox. The emails will be stored as a file in the storage folder.


This package requires PHP 8.1 and Laravel 9. If you need compatibility with older versions, check the alternatives section.


You can install this package via composer:

composer require creagia/laravel-web-mailer

After that, open your config/mail.php file and add the web mailer entry in the mailers configuration array.

'mailers' => [
    // ...
    'web' => [
        'transport' => 'web',

Finally, you can enable the web mailer setting the defined mailer in your .env file:


We recommend you publish the configuration file to be able to perform some customizations

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="web-mailer-config"

Inbox URL

The default URL to view the emails is /web-inbox. You can change it, by adding the below entry to your .env file:


Route protection

By default, the inbox URL is authorized for everybody who has the link. If you need to add some protection, you can modify the middleware array on the config/web-mailer.php file.

Delete all stored emails

php artisan laravel-web-mailer:clear-all

Delete stored emails older than N days

php artisan laravel-web-mailer:cleanup

You can run or schedule the command laravel-web-mailer:cleanup to delete the emails older than N days. By default, it will delete emails older than 7 days. You can customize the number of days by changing the delete_emails_older_than_days parameter on the config/web-mailer.php file.
