Kontact is the PIM program, sort of like Outlook. Kmail is a part of 
that, but it can be run on its own (without the calendar, etc)

The "trick" to kmail is to make sure you have set up an identity first.
What specifically have you done in terms of setup?
Here are some setup tutorials that may help you:  (this looks older

Thunderbird mail/Evolution are not installed by default, but can easily 
be obtained via "Add/Remove Programs". All 3 are nice, it just boils 
down to personal preferences
