Today I faced a problem, what at start looked like pain, but in result turned out to be simplier than simple. I needed to send confirmation e-mail from the webform to the submitter, that e-mail has been received, and some plain text message with further instructions.

Some time ago I already wrote how to add contact form to Drupal, today I'll show how to send confirmation e-mail to submitter:

This is the screenshot for webform I have on my site. As you can see, I have a field called - Your email. Now if we go to E-mails tab, we can add some componet to send confirmation mesagge to value of email field:

Click next to Component value, and choose from dropdown your email field. Next click Add.

Now change E-mail to address value, to Component yiur e-mail field. Add some customization and message. And you are done. Save your form. And next time, someone will leave a message to your webform. He/she will recieve confimation e-mail as well. Simple, right?
