There is a module available for this purpose; Webform Confirm Email Address
webform_confirm_email is a simple addon module for the webform module.
If you define an email in webform (eg. mydomain.net/node/9999/webform/emails) this email/these emails will be send immediately when the user clicked the webform submit button.
Even without this module, we can send confirmation email to users. Important thing to note here is while creating the email component, we have to select Email as webform's Type. Go to the Email section of the webform. From there you can select the the email component as 'to'. Then add from, subject and template of the email to be sent.
