KDE has not its own mailserver and relies on a functioning setup or 
delivering to your provider's smtp server directly. But this is not part of 
this list.
But you do not even provide a valid return address in your mail. You really 
should change that.

KDE does use the debian mechanism privoded through X configuration files. Use 
the Control Center as root (you should not start X as root, though).
To change default use "update-alternatives --config x-window-manager". KDE2 
is not there by default though you may have to insert it manually.

Ivan: Why is KDE2 not in that list???

What do you mean with that??? You want to change the wm (like gnome does)?
