Creating multiple users in Kmail with a single KDE user

We are two users sharing one KDE username, we have seperate e-mail adr. and can't find out how to create multiple Kmail users. We have set up two different identities, with an in-box and "sent items"-folder each, but would prefer to have two seperate users. Is this possible?

Start Kmail and click on Settings, then Configure Kmail. On the left, select Identities, then on the right click on the New... button. Then work your way through the creation of new identities.

Why not use 2 users outright? What's stopping you from doing that?

I know mozilla allows multiple profiles by the same user. Not so sure about kmail
