Sending email after submitting InfoPath form (without coding)

Q: I use InfoPath form to submit data to a database. My form is published in SharePoint. How can I send an email either to myself or to some one else right after submitting the form?


Why don't you use Infopath's built in functionality? You have created a data connection to submit data to database. Create another connection that will send an email to your account. In Tools > Submitting Forms > Rules, Add a new rule. Add action in this rule. Select "Submit using a data connection" in the actions drop down and select email connection in the "Data Connection" drop down.
