How to code the sending a mail/message to a specific registered user of the system from the admin of the system?

For example, in a form then there is a field (many2one ), there, i need to select a specific user that is registered in the system. And then there is a button which will be pressed so it will send a mail/message to the selected user. The mail/message will come from the admin of the system. The user will have to receive it when the user logged in, and will see it in his/her inbox. The type of the message is comment.


Please help me with this. And please give also a sample code.

# create form with the fields as below in xml and get the fields from your form in py and create a record in mail.mail
it will automatically send to user('email_to')
And you have a configuration part in Setting -> Technical -> Scheduler
configure your interval time in Email Queue Manager

email_from = login user mail-id
email_to = "what you choose (res.users many2one)"
sub = " "
body_html = " "

vals ={'email_from':email_from,
                        'state': 'outgoing',
                            'subject': sub,
                            'body_html': body,
                            'auto_delete': True}

self.pool.get('mail.mail').create(cr, uid, vals, context=context)
