Let be clear only few applications in TDE use dbus and these are the once that need interaction with dbus for some reason - kmail has nothing to do with dbus. You should think of using pipes - I do not mean the unix '|' but in your process. One application works on content in one directory and delivers the output into another directory, where other application uses this as input and delivers to another directory.
