opening external URL's in new tabs?

Is there a way to make URL's clicked in Kmail (for example) to open in a new 
tab i existing Konqueror-window? I did find the "Open as tab in existing 
Konqueror when URL is called externally" that SHOULD logically do that. But 
it doesn't. Reason being that if that checkbox is checked, the system will 
check just the current desktop for running Konqueror. If none is found, it 
will open a new window and load the URL there.

Why is that a problem? Well, I have configured my desktop in such way that I 
have Kmail running on Desktop 1 in full-screen, and I have Desktop 2 
dedicated for Konqueror and other apps. I have also window-specific settings 
which tell the system to load Kmail on desktop 1, and load all 
Konqueror-sessions in Desktop 2. If I click on a URL in Kmail, I would like 
the constantly running Konqueror-window on Desktop 2 to load the URL, but 
that does not happen. What happens is that the system loads a new 
Konqueror-window (which then appears on Desktop 2, next to the old 
Konqueror-window), and loads the URL there. Is there any way to change this
