It would be as easy as adding a new workflow step within your workflow model. You can use the AEM out of the box "Day CQ Mail Service" to send out emails; make sure you Configure AEM to use a Mail Server.

Watch this 16 minutes youtube video to walk through step by step on how to send out an email within starting a workflow process - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8fYQuZ8cwI

@imadullakhan , for testing purposes, try using a gmail account's SMTP settings (https://www.androidauthority.com/gmail-smtp-settings-801100/), also you would need to enable the "allow less secure" app configuration on the gmail account (https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en).

Also, tail the error log to review any errors, while using the Day CQ Mail Service; lots of good information are logged.

I had a problem with this in the past, and it seems like the email SMTP settings were not configured properly.

@imadullakhan Additionally you can use the Email API of ACS commons https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/e-mail/email-api/index.html for sending email via your workflow after following all the above answers to configure workflows.
