I believe kmail uses crypt to store the password.  While crypt is considered 
insecure I wouldn't suggest cracking the password, it could take a week 
depending on the computer.

How about instead changing the pop server to localhost and monitoring 
communication? kmail must send the password unencrypted.  I think apache logs 
all communication if you tell it to.
