How do I go about making it so that a note is automatically mailed to me as soon as a new material is created?...
And where I can get some documentation on this?
This can easily be done using Workflow. You will need to attach a custom built workflow to the event that is raised when the Material is created. After the event is created you will need to trigger your workflow which will send the mail. Check out http://help.sap.com and the documentation on the Send Mail functionality.
