I've upgraded from 5.6 to 5.7 and have implemented the new Verification feature for users email. if i put
->middleware('verified'); on to a route, sure enough, the verification shows, and the user gets the option to resend the verification email.
However, i'd like that to send upon registration (it's not doing that now). It would be nice to send some kind of Welcome email, that would include the verification link.
