welcome to the forums! hope you find lots of great help here.

if you simply want 2 emails sent out, then, do something like this:
if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
  // send first email:
  $to = 'you@yourdomain.com';
  $from = $_POST['email'];
  $subject = "Comment from $_POST[name]\n";
  $message = "You have received a message from your contact form:\n\n" .
      "Name: $_POST[name]\n\n" .
  mail($to, $subject, $message, "From: $from\r\n Reply-To: $from\r\n");

  // send confirmation email
  $to = $_POST['email'];
  $from = 'you@yourdomain.com';
  $subject = "Thanks for your comments";
  $message = "Thank you for taking the time to send me your comments!";
  mail($to, $subject, $message, "From: $from\r\n Reply-To: $from\r\n");

<form name='comments' method='post' action=''>
Name: <input type='text' name='name' /><br />
Email: <input type='text' name='email' /><br />
Comment: <textarea name='comment' cols='60' rows='12'></textarea>

of course, for the final version of this, you'd want to run some validation to make sure they enter a valid email address, etc.

hope this helps
