You're not the only one who would like this feature. It's pretty high up
there on the requested features list, and was originally submitted in
September of 2001. See the full bug thread at:
It seems that this feature won't be implemented before KDE 4, but stands a
good chance once KDE4 is out (if it isn't implemented right off the bat).
Note that knode does have this feature.

I wasn't able to find this in the bug database, so it's possible no one
submitted this request. On the other hand, it's possible kmail can already
do this, but I don't know how. The closest I can get is using the status
filter above the message list to show only messages that I've replied to.
You won't see your messages, but you'll be quickly able to identify the
threads you replied to, and then you can change the view to see the full
thread. Yes, it's a pain, but it's better than nothing.

Sorry for the bad news.
