This is no answer.
But I was right. People using Mailgun driver and adapting the new Mail config from Laravel 7 brake their Mailgun functionality.
Laracast Business on Youtube addresses this issue. Check https://youtu.be/vcQD9tHy6Gg At least I found the solution myself just before the release of this video. Problem solved.
Started a new Conversation Laravel 7 Replaced MAIL_DRIVER By MAIL_MAILER
Note: I am using mailgun driver to deliver e-mail to Mailgun by API and not by SMTP.
The upgrade documentation of Laravel 7 talks about a Mail configuration change. I implemented the new configuration although the old configuration is still valid or compatible.
After implementing the new mail configuration my MAIL_DRIVER provider in the .env was not working anymore. Laravel wanted to send e-mail through smtp which was not configured and it throws out an exception.
The documentation of Laravel 7 still writes: To use the Mailgun driver, first install Guzzle, then set the driver option in your config/mail.php configuration file to mailgun. This is the same text as for Laravel 6 and is is not correct it seems.
I needed to replace MAIL_DRIVER by MAIL_MAILER in my .env file and set it to MAIL_MAILER=mailgun. Next, I opened the config/mail.php and added a new mailer like:
'mailgun' => [ 'transport' => 'mailgun', ],
And then it worked again. So before the MAIL_DRIVER skipped any other mail configuration and was using the information directly in config/services but now the flow is different.
Before: .env -> MAIL_DRIVER -> config/services -> Mailgun.
After: .env -> MAIL_MAILER -> config/mail -> config/services -> Mailgun
I think it is more logic but the documentation is not pointing this out. There is no driver option anymore. It is the transport option.
Anybody else noticing this?
