Hi Peter,

See if you can copy ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/mail/"yourFolder"/cur
(or wherever your file is) with konquereor or a terminal.
If that works, and to be on the safe side I suggest you first backup the whole 
kmail folder.

The problem is that the files in those .../mail/...folders don't appear with 
their name, so to isolate your broken message you could create a 
"newYourFolder" in KMail and move all messages (but the faulty one) from 
"yourFolder" to there.

Then, after having closed KMail, you could probably delete your file with
