Interesting thought, but I already tried that route and hit the roadblock 
previously mentioned. Beside the mailto to entry is a list box offering:

* always ask
* use evolution
* use gmail
* use yahoo
* use other...

Picking the use other option opens up a box titled Select Helper Application and 
that's where I get stuck. No apparent search feature, and I have no clue what 
to look for in the way of a location or file name to hook up with kmail.

Sooo... The input is appreciated, but I'm afraid we're still stuck on square
