Mail Telegram plugin allows to receive site mail to your telegram account via bot. You can log all email sent on the website or configure this plugin to receive only notification emails for particular administrator(s). Use case: you want to receive your contact form emails to the Telegram.

See the documentation for configuration details.



Using the Laravel’s CLI is the fastest way to get started. Just run the following commands in a project’s root directory:

php artisan plugin:install vdomah.mailtelegram

Get user chat id

For getting user chat id - write any message to bot or just click Start. Then you can go to Mail Telegram settings and in Receivers tab you'll see your telegram user ID. Second way you can get your user's ID - open the following url in your browser:


Don't forget to replace {{token}} with your bot token.

Enter this token and chat id into plugin settings. That is all, have a nice experience with this plugin!

Other settings

You can disable telegram notifications in debug mode.

Disabled sending mail to Telegram

You can disable telegram notifications at all.

Admins to send mail

If you check admin1 - only those mail that has "To" parameter set to admin1's e-mail will be sent to the Telegram chat.

Formatting tab

Make notification mail text compact by stripping ends of lines. That will transform the mail text into one paragraph.
