No, preferably not :)

What you should do is enable those keys for all applications, not just KMail. 
Go to the KDE Configuration Centre, Regional & Accessibility and then 
Keyboard Layout. In this section you can configure your keyboard. Especially 
note the last tab, which allows you to use for example AltGr as compose key 
(for accents and stuff).

Kind regards,
