Here's where to look / what to do:

- KMail -> Settings (menu) -> Configure KMail
- Appearance category
- Headers tab
- From Message Header Threading Options (middle section) select:
"Open threads that contain new, unread or important message
and open watched threads."

Is there any way to just make them bold, or a different colour? Even if
they are expanded, it is more tricky to find unread items. I like to
keep them all closed, scan for interesting threads, then expand, it
keeps things much simpler!

In the upper right corner there is dropdown box for filtering the
view. Select there Unreaded.


I dont think I am explaining myself properly...
When the thread is not expanded, only the first mail is visible.
Any mail under the first mail is not visible, so it does not matter if it is a different colour, shape, size etc.
Try it out if you use kmail - go to the folder where this list gets to, click the "folder" menu, click "thread messages". you now have a + next to the threads to expand and contract the threads. Collapse a thread and you will see that only the first message is visible. Now expand the thread and mark one of the mails as unread. It turns blue/red/green/bold/whatyouconfigured. Now collapse the thread. There is no way of telling that the thread contains an unread message.
Maybe I've got a buggy install, or Im doing something wrong?
