I'm not a kmail expert, but here are some suggestions/possibilities:

1) To save the thread to a single file:

-- collapse the thread; select it
-- use menu: File>Save As

The result of this will be a file that contains all the
mail, and is (I think) also a valid *nix 'mbox' file.

2) Searching:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22mbox+to+html%22

finds:

http://www.mhonarc.org/

which _may_ help you turn that mbox to a nice set of 
html files.

3) Best place for kmail questions: kdepim-users list:
