Just a shot in the dark here, but if you are using selinux, setenforce 0 
and see if
it will work. The reason I say it's a shot in the dark is because 
selinux seems to be
designed to protect us from ourselves, something many of us don't need 
a good idea for me though;) ). If it is the problem, I have no idea how 
to tweak it
for kmail.
Are you able to send mail from other MTUs? Thunderbird, mutt etc?
