I don't see how the ISP can know the difference between kmail sending
directly and an SMTP daemon on your box sending.  Unless they count
received headers or something, but a simple daemon like qpsmtpd could be
patched to remove them and just forward the remainder.  And it (like as
you say any smtpd) could be made to log what it had sent.  I don't have
a direct answer to your question though I'm afraid.
