How to automatically send an additional email next to the normal invoice email?

After a customer has purchased a product from our Magento shop, he receives the invoice via email. That is working well. Now I want to send another email, a “welcome letter”, to the same email address if the customer has purchased a product of a certain category (or alternatively one specific product).

My question: Is there a built-in way (i.e. without PHP coding) to achieve that, tied to a product category or one certain product?
If not, what would be the easiest way to achieve that via PHP coding?

Thanks!

PS: We are using Community version 1.4.1.1

Have a look at the Follow Up Email Magento module that allows sending fully automated emails to customers who purchase a product of a certain category. You can also insert coupons, purchased products, pictures, tracking codes, restore cart links.

Visit the product page and see the complete list of extension features.

Thanks, but we would like to do that on our own rather than buying a new module.

Extensions are developed to save time and money. I suggest you to have a look at this Follow Up Module, It is less priced and worth having it. Starting from scratch can take months.
