Configure Kmail to use different smtp servers for different identities

I have and
I want to send emails to two different groups of people
and use a separate smtp server for each account so people
that receive emails from username2 don't know about username1 account.

At the moment I have to manually go into settings and change the default smtp server before I send the message. So I basically want to associate an smtp server with an identity. It doesn't seem that this is possible to do.

I do know about the "Reply to Address" option but this is not what I want. For starters my smtp server won't allow this operation to take place.

Anyways hope there is a Kmail guru around that can assist me on this.

Wouldn't it be easiest just to create another user, and set up their kmail to use the different identity?
