I recently upgraded from kde-apps/kmail-17.08.3 to kde-apps/kmail-17.12.3.
Since then I have been looking for the message structure panel (giving the
choice to view selected emails as HTML, if applicable). I wondered why it had
suddenly gone, and I was looking for the appropriate setting.

Searching online, I found a copy of the kmail handbook of an older version
(2013-12-12 KDE 4.12) which describes exactly what seems to have disappeared
since kmail 17.12:

3.1 The Main Window

If you prefer to view your email in HTML format instead of plain text (Default)

will inform you which view you are in. If this bar is missing you can enable it
in the Settings → Configure KMail... dialog, from there you want the Message
Window tab, and select Show HTML status bar

For complex messages you can show the structure of the message by selecting
View → Show Message Structure, this will show in the message structure viewer
below the preview pane.

All the UI and configuration elements mentionned in bold above seem to have

Same but with better formatting:
