same here :)
but, I also have sometimes the intension of encrypting some existing emails.
usually I collect them in a folder and export that via kmail's export feature 
to a tar.bz2 file which is then encrypted with kgpg.
then I delete the mails in the kmail folder.
if needed, I can always decrypt the file and re-import it,
or just browse the unpacked files.

not exactly intuitive, some steps required, but I can live with that, given 
this ist not a day-to-day need.
