    You will need a server side language like PHP to do this. HTML is only a presentational language. You can't do anything in it except define how a web page looks. Anything involving processing data in any way requires a server side language or JavaScript.

    I recommend starting with a basic PHP tutorial so that you learn the basic syntax of the language.

    Then take a look at the PHPMailer or Swift Mailer libraries and use one of them to send a basic email to yourself without an attachment.

    Then learn how to handle file uploads in PHP.

    Then you can combine the two to send yourself the uploaded file.

    This is a decent starting project for learning to program, although both email sending and file uploads can be relatively complicated subjects.

    Any server side language could do it; asp.net, python, perl, ruby, jsp, etc. You only need one though, and PHP is popular.
