Sharepoint - notify submitters of reciept of submissions emailed to library?

Scenario - a library that we don't want users to access, with email submission enabled.

I'd like to be able to notify users by email that their submissions have been received, but a standard alert won't work because everybody included in the alert will receive an alert for any submission, not just their own. The submissions contain info that is proprietary to us and each submitter, so submitters must not be able to see each others' submissions, or see who else has sent submissions.

Can anybody suggest a way this might be doable?

Thanks
Dave

You could try a SharePoint Designer workflow.  Create and attach to the library and set it to respond when new items are created.  The workflow should be simply to send an email to the creator of the current item.  As long as the user submitting is a domain user with an email address on their AD account, it should work.

Thanks - it just dawned on me (duh) that this can't be done either in this case - the submittals are sent to a corporate email account and then forwarded from that account to the library, so in every case the sender is the corporate account. I'm awarding points anyway since your solution would work otherwise.

Thanks
