If you wish to pop messages sent by /you/ off the stack while leaving all
others on the server, I am not sure you can trivially achieve that. Mail is
being delivered and stored serially, so I suspect no setting in KMail will
enable you to do this. See Aho's solution, which is more complex and relies
on understanding of lower-granularity tools.
Hope it helps,
