Laravel: email is sent, but not received?

Posted 4 months ago by uccdev

So I have this function to send an email:

         public function email($data) {
               Mail::raw("Simple email to confirm email functionality works", function($message) {
                 $message->to('[email protected]');
                 $message->from('[email protected]');
               if (count(Mail::failures()) > 0) {
                 Log::info("Error! Email did not send.");
               Log::info("email sent");


My config/mail.php is configured like so:

    'host' => env('MAIL_HOST', 'smtp.mailgun.org'),
    'driver' => env('MAIL_DRIVER', 'smtp'),
    'port' => env('MAIL_PORT', xxx),
    'from' => [
            'address' => env('MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS', '[email protected]'),
            'name' => env('MAIL_FROM_NAME', 'me'),

So I expect my mailtrap account, when the function is called, to send an email to the designated "[email protected]". And it does, it sends an email: I can see that clearly from the logs on my mailtrap account.

But, [email protected] receives nothing. Not in my inbox, and not in my junk email.

Any advice on what could be going on here? Any help would be appreciated
