You missread my mail. That file you showing is not in the original
It's probably added by kubuntu developer.
The desktop file in the sources (kdepim-3.5.9.tar.bz2) that i mention
looks like this
Exec=kmail -caption "%c" %i %m
and as far as i understand it that desktop file _will_ give a
menuentry for KMail.
