Laravel Mail Export is a simple mailable trait and interface to export emails to a storage disk once sent. This package works by exporting any mail sent as a .eml file to a filesystem disk, which is useful for archival purposes.

Here's an example from the readme of how to use this package, which includes implementing the ShouldExport interface and use the Exportable trait:

1namespace App\Mail;
2 
3use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
4use PodPoint\MailExport\Concerns\Exportable;
5use PodPoint\MailExport\Contracts\ShouldExport;
6 
7class OrderShipped extends Mailable implements ShouldExport
8{
9 use Exportable;
10 
11 // ...
12}

You can also configure the mailable disk, path, and filename via a class property, or more flexibly, using methods:

1public function exportDisk(): string
2{
3 return 'some_disk';
4}
5 
6public function exportPath(): string
7{
8 return 'some_path';
9}
10 
11public function exportFilename(): string
12{
13 return time() . '_some_filename';
14}

You can learn more about this package, get full installation instructions, and view the source code on GitHub.
