This problem apparently has a history:

One solution might be to change from KMail to Thunderbird, either 
entirely or for selected correspondents.

Installing additional mail facilities to capture and transfer messages 
from selected correspondents to alternative email clients, e.g. procmail 
/ mutt, might be another solution.

Others may have technical details about configuring such a more 
complicated email system.
