Hi,

just added this to the front-end form. When a new item is created and saved (via the controllers save function), the following function is called that will send an email to all users that have in their profile 'Receive system emails' set to yes.

hope this helps.
regards,
Ruud

/**
	 * Send mail to administrators
	 *
	 * @param   integer  $id  The id of the row to check out.
	 *
	 * @return void
	 */
	public function sendSystemMail($id)
	{
		// Get the id.
		$id = (!empty($id)) ? $id : (int) $this->getState('newsitem.id');

		$app = JFactory::getApplication('com_ochgotnews');
		$params = $app->getParams();

		if ($params->get('ochgotnews_mailonnew', true))
		{
			$user = JFactory::getUser();

			// Build the email subject and message
			$sitename = JFactory::getApplication()->get('sitename');
			$siteURL = JUri::root() . 'administrator/index.php?option=com_ochgotnews&task=newsitem.edit&id=' . $id;
			$subject = JText::sprintf('COM_OCHGOTNEWS_MAIL_SUBJECT', $sitename);
			$msg = JText::sprintf('COM_OCHGOTNEWS_MAIL_MESSAGE', $siteURL);

			// Get the user that are configured to receive system emails
			$db = JFactory::getDBO();
			$query = $db->getQuery(true);
			$query
				->select(array('name', 'email'))
				->from($db->quoteName('#__users'))
				->where($db->quotename('sendEmail') . ' = ' . $db->quote('1'));
			$db->setQuery($query);
			$recipients = $db->loadObjectList();

			foreach ($recipients as $recipient)
			{
				// Compile mailer function:
				$mailer = JFactory::getMailer()
				->setSubject($subject)
				->setBody($msg)
				->setSender(
					$user->email,
					$user->name
					)
				->addRecipient(
					$recipient->email,
					$recipient->name
					);

				$mailer->Send();
			}
		}
	}
