Most definitely...

All kmail does is run the filters; if your filters are not set up correctly 
then of course it wont work. Having said that it seems an awfully long time 
ago that kmail introduced an option to install spamassasin filters 
automatically so that people dont have to do it manually with old guides and 
    Yes; I just checked... It was in the 1.6x cvs builds and released in 
version 1.7 with kde3.3.0.    So is there any reason why you can't just go to 
your kmail tools menu and choose the antispam wizard and let it install 
correctly working filters for you?
