1. In Kmail, click on your TO address for intended recipient (but don't change 
it unless you intend to do so). 

2. Hit return, and you will find an address line added for CC. 

(Now I use the tab & shift-tab to move back and forth through the menu; much 
easier than mouse for this small task. But the mouse will work, too.) 

3. When you get to your CC addresses (usually beneath the TO address), you can 
either left-click that with your mouse (or mouse keys, if you like to use 
them); or better, I think, to use a DOWN arrow key, and you ought to see BCC; 
and if you hit UP arrow key, you will revert to CC. 

And there it is. 

A handy tip our armchair adventurers: 
For myself, I like to create email templates in Kmail for oft-used 
correspondents (such as the trinity-users list!); this saves me lots of time, 
as my TO, BCC & CC are already filled out. I make my subject line TDE, and 
just change that before sending. When I was rebuilding my machine, I used to 
send a BCC copy to my Gmail account, so that I didn't lose anything in the 
occasional chaos of reinstallations, partioning, etc. So creating a templates 
do make some of my emails semi-automated was very helpful.
