Creating a Task Trigger to send an email

I wanted to create a workflow that would send an email whenever a First Meeting task was created. I have found out that that is not possible but also saw that you could create a trigger to do this. When I go to Setup --> Customize --> Activities --> Task Triggers, I do not see anything that allows me to create a New trigger. I am currently using Enterprise version of Salesforce. What is the code for the trigger to work in this scenario?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I am not sure if you want to write apex code, if so there are many posts to write a trigger to send email.

But I would also suggest you to look at Visual Flows, which can help you to easily build something like this without writing code.
