there are a couple if threads about this topic in the archives of this  
mailing list. It can be tricky to get s/mime to work in kmail :-) but  
it works (well it's most often not a problem of kmail but a problem of  
the parts that are used for the x.509 stuff).

BTW, what is the problem/error message?

Here are a few hints that I hope will help you to find/fix whatever is broken:

* is gpg-agent running?
* are you able to validate your cert in kleopatra?
* have a look at kwatchgnupg, it will help you to determine the actual  
error, if all you get is "...failed. General Error"
