Thanks Martin,

I tried to increase the INNODB buffer as suggested with no success.
And btw, I do not have a performance problem, KMail is hanging forever.

Someone mentioned

Not sure how fast it will make it into Debian.
And I am not sure if this addresses my problem... I now have several emails 
that produce the issue just by clicking on them.

KMail evolved from a once very stable and fast mail client to a almost 
unusable one. Each iteration/bugfix comes with new bugs that are even worse 
than the ones fixed. My conclusion after years of suffering: KMail does not 
have enough dev resources - it is literally dead and meanwhile lacks many 
features that other mail client had for years (one badly missing and requested 
years ago: Saving encrypted messages unencrypted locally).
