I'm not aware of the existence of something like "jumble all shortcuts". 
KMail stores user defined shortcuts in
for the composer and the main window, respectively. (Depending on your 
distribution you might have to look into ~/.kde4 instead of ~/.kde.)

As you have problems with the shortcut for sending mail have a look into 
kmcomposerui.rc. The shortcuts are defined at the end of this file. If 
your copy of kmcomposerui.rc doesn't look suspicious (or if you do not 
find this file in the above mentioned location) then have a look at the 
global copy of this file. On openSUSE it is in

Could it be that the problems were actually caused by the VNC client?
