How would I add a simple text auto-responder to the attached code?

Thanks in advance!
<form method=post action="?">
<br />
      <span class="whitebold">Email: </span>
      <span class="whitebold">
      <?php
//set up for email info
$strTo = 'newsletter@xxx.com'; //your email here
$strSubject = 'New Registration'; //default subject 
$strBody = '';

if ($_POST['submit']) {
	
	$strEmail = trim($_POST['email']);

	//both fields are required 
	if (!$strEmail) {
		$error = 'Please input both field!<br />';
	}	
	//elseif () {//extra validate should be here. eg: validate email address
	//}
	else {
		//prepare mail body
		$strBody = <<<BODY
New registration
Email: {$strEmail}
BODY;

		//send email
		@mail ($strTo, $strSubject, $strBody,
     "From: ".$strTo."\r\n" .
     "Reply-To: ".$strTo."\r\n" .
     "X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());


		//display message
		echo 'thanks for registering!';
		
	}
}
?>
      </span>
    <table width="177" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <td width="61%" align="left"><input name="email" type="text" size="12" /></td>
        <td width="39%" align="right"><input name="submit" type="image" value="send" src="images/register.png" align="bottom" /></td>
      </tr>
  </table>
   
</form>

Not sure exactly what you're after, here. Auto-respond to WHOM?
To the person that filled the form?
To do that, just add this code after this line

"X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());

//prepare mail body
$strBody = <<<BODY
Thanks for registering
BODY;

//send email
@mail ($strEmail, $strSubject, $strBody,
"From: ".$strTo."\r\n" .
"Reply-To: ".$strTo."\r\n" .
"X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());

Among other things, it will help you avoid becoming an open relay for spam.

I totally agree with what Ray has said about being an open relay. You WILL need to secure that thing.
