I see. 
I do not know what is the mechanism exploited by knode; but i do not think 
it relies on kmail. 
Anyway knode allows to add mailto: header only when replying to messages, 
I am sure knode in kde 3.5 allowed one to add the same header also when 
starting a new thread.

Knode saves a copy automatically too. What i would like to do is to send a 
copy to a gmail account of mine.
