I don't see a way to set that, either per-folder or generally.  However, 
the aggregation settings can be modified, such that only the groups and 
threads with unread messages actually expand.

IDR what the default aggregation settings are/were, but I found them a bit 
unsatisfactory and customized them, here, then made my customization the 
default.  That seems to work relatively well, tho I can see how it'd still 
not be the greatest for following lists.

However, I'm a long-time USENET user, and as such, prefer newsgroups to 
lists.  As a result, I use gmane.org's (free) list2news service to follow 
my mailing lists as newsgroups, thus eliminating them from my kmail inbox. 

(FWIW, I use the gtk based pan as my newsclient, as years ago, knode 
wasn't satisfactory to me for some reason or another.  So how kde's knode 
works these days I don't know, but you're welcome to try pan, and if 
you've any questions, post them to the pan user list, which happens to be 
carried on gmane along with this and other kde lists and the gentoo 
distribution lists I follow as well. =:^)
