Hello, Lou --
I think that you can go to KMail --> Configure KMail --> Security --> 
Reading and check the item "Prefer HTML to plain text".  Please be 
sure to notice the "WARNING" and the hyper-links provided in  that 
paragraph; this topic CAN be VERY important to you -- depending 
upon your relationship with the TRUE source of the message!!!

If this does NOT do the trick, please post again -- and let us know 
what has happened when you tried it.  I certainly hope that this solves 
your momentary problem!  (I would also strongly suggest that, if you 
use this device, un-check the same item as soon as you have read 
the message that you want to see.)
