As I said, I don't know Kmail. It is difficult to see what a e-mail
client puts in the envelope. You can try sending direct to your ISP's
SMTP server. Example (w/ things you need to supply in <brackets>,
things dependent on the other end indicated by ..., you type telnet
line and lines beginning with words in all uppercase, and lines from
Subject to the period on a line by itself):

telnet <> 25
Trying ...
Connected to ...
Escape character is ']'
HELO <your.hostname.domainname>
220 ...
MAIL From: <myusername@xxxxxxxxx>
250 ...
RCPT To: <someuser@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
250 ...
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself
Subject: test

body of test message
250 ...
221 ...
Connection closed by foreign host.

Of course, if Kmail isn't sending what you think, the exercise is
