You need to configure your system name. I suspect your e-mails are
going out with something like localhost@localdomain or whatever the
default is. I don't know Kmail. I suspect that the error message is
coming from the other end. As an anti-spam measure, it is demanding
that the From: address in the envelope (not necessarily the same as the
From: address in the header) have a domain name that resolves to an
Internet address. Whose SMTP server are you using? Your ISP or are
you running Sendmail, Postfix, qmail, etc?
