Laravel comes with an email sending library built in. See more information on how to use Laravel with SendGrid.

In app/config/mail.php you need to configure these settings:

<?php

return array(
	'driver' => 'smtp',
	'host' => 'smtp.sendgrid.net',
	'port' => 587,
	'from' => array('address' => 'from@example.com', 'name' => 'John Smith'),
	'encryption' => 'tls',
	'username' => 'sendgrid_username',
	'password' => 'sendgrid_password',
);

?>

You can use Laravel’s Mail class just like you normally would, but all email will be sent through SendGrid!

    $message->to('jane@example.com', 'Jane Doe')->subject('This is a demo!');
});

?>
