This appears to work:

Pull-down Settings --> Configure Kmail.  Select Composer, then Standard 
Templates.  In the large New Message box, space down two lines, and type 
%BLANK.  Do the same for Reply to Sender, Reply to All, and Forward Message, 
as required.

The known is finite, the unknown is infinite; intellectually we stand on an 
islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability. Our business in 
every generation is to reclaim a little more land.
