You need to have a python code that will generate the mail and send. You can place the below code (and modify it to fit your needs) in the model for which you want to send email, and than call the method send_mail("name of the temlate") from the code that handles your form submission, or I prefer to have a workflow associated with the model and send mail from the actions in the workflow.

    def send_mail(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None, template=""):
       for object in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):
            # Check if the parnter has "opt_out" for the mail
            if (not
                template_id =
self.pool.get('email.template').search(cr, uid, [("name","=",template)])
                if template_id:
                    mail_message = self.pool.get('email.template').send_mail(cr,uid,template_id[0],object.id)

Can you explain? The code above is a compete example of sending email, all you need to do is to add the code to your model and call the self.send_mail from the place you need.
