If you want to send the email on the form submission, you add the action of sending to the form's action.
If you want to do it the moment the email address eas entered, you can do it with the 'onblur' event. calling an ajax request to do so.
in both cases a server side script (like php) does the actual email address grabbing and email sending.
Here is a php sample.

Javascript can't do that, you have to have a server side language like PHP or ASP.  In addition, 'auto-reply' will be abused by spammers as soon as they find it to send a lot of unwanted emails.  Can cause your email address to be blacklisted.
