    Yes! you can do this by adding a hook to your collection:



    https://payloadcms.com/docs/hooks/collections


    Here's a little snippet:



    import { AfterChangeHook } from "payload/dist/collections/config/types";
    
    export const sendMailAfterCreate: AfterChangeHook = ({ req, operation, doc }) => {
      //we only want to handle "create operations".
      if(operation !== 'create') {
        return;
      }
    
      const {payload} = req;
    
      payload.sendEmail({
        from: '"Fred Foo 👻" <foo@example.com>', // sender address
        to: "bar@example.com, baz@example.com", // list of receivers
        subject: "Hello ✔", // Subject line
        text: "Hello world?", // plain text body
        html: "<b>Hello world?</b>", // html body
      });
    }
