Hi Benjamin,
I don't use kmail so I can't help you there. I'm running a 2.6.8 kernel
(etch) and use Thunderbird as my email client. Clicking on a url in an
email message brings up epiphany with the page loaded correctly. There
is a TB extension called "launchy" where you can specify which browser
you want the url to load in.

Please don't cc: your posting to my personal address.
Thank you.
