I'm using a node creation form open to anonymous users to register volunteers for an event, and I want to redirect them to a thank you page, and send them an email when they register.

I'm using Rules to detect the submission of a volunteer node, and trigger a redirect to the thank you page, but I cannot figure out how to send a mail to the address specified in the form submitted.

As long as you have the Rules module and the Token module installed, it should be a pretty straightforward.

1) Create a rule that responds to the event "After saving new content"

2) Add an action to that rule "Send a mail to an arbitrary mail address" (from the System section)

3) Use a token for the Recipient field. As long as there is a CCK field for the email address, there will be a token provided for it. It will be listed in "Token replacement patterns."
