I don't recognise this pattern of behaviour in KMail - it sounds more like 
Thunderbird behaviour.  When you set up the sending section of your accounts 
in KMail you can choose whether to save the password.  Is there any reason 
why you are not saving it, remembering that kwallet saves it encrypted?  If 
you can't save it, for some security reason, then you will have to give the 
password every time.
