Look, that's not what you asked for...

and _that_ has nothing to do with menus.  You want an action that happens 
when you press delete, and we told you how to do that.

KDE apps generally don't give you a way to add menu options (simply at least 
- iirc, it was always possible to do it via dcop, and should still be 
possible via dbus), but this IS an existing command in KMail - it simply 
doesn't have a menu entry.

So just do what we suggested.  It would be so much easier if you'd actually 
try what we suggest _before_ coming back with followup questions.
