I think that you're going to like my answer!
Yes...the signal to the external monitor is sent automatically. But "officially" the eMac is only supposed to be capable of "mirroring" only on an external display. But (another but)
...there is a "hack" available that allows the external monitor to work in "extended desktop" mode.
In the "Display" preferences...you simply switch from mirror to extended desktop on the external monitor.
I've done this "hack" on an iMac G4...and it worked great!
