You are sending the mail in Laravel but Cannot send message without a sender address show the error, what is the reason behind it?

It’s solved, and just understand the reason you have forget the mail id from on .env file you have setup username password but you have not filled the MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=null and you need to use it like.

Expected response code 354 but got an empty response

this errors comes while you are not setup correctly the MAIL_ENCRYPTION section or setting, you need to setup according to the SSL/TLS and Non SSL

If you are using Non SSL then you need to add the MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls but it’s not recommended.


Non SSL need to add 587 SMTP port.

and next problem is

Connection to tcp://mail. Timed Out web mail setting

this is the mainly wrong setup, but above mentions all solution is for every wrong setting, but some time it not declare the what is the exactly problem so I told you the right solution for it.

Main two factors remember for it.


What SMTP you are using for? SSL/TLS

if you are using the SSL/TLS SMTP protocol like 465 then you need to use MAIL_ENCRYPTION=ssl not the tls


By default in Laravel has non ssl port 587 so you need to change 465 and ssl for the solution


For Non SSL/TLS setup
