Kmail Accounts

I have one email account with email provider and another with gmail in kmail. My question is when is when I open the new message form I only have one of my accounts in the "from" column. Can it be fixed so that one has a choice of which email appears in the "from" column.

I don't know how you've set-up your kmail, but when I
want to send from different accounts I just navigate
to the appropriate "Folder" in the location pane, and
create my mail then.

Choose identity

There should be a "identity" box at the top with list of available accounts/users. There is also "sticky" button to set which one is used which can be different from default.

I don't have any accounts shown under local folder. The only account I show is my gmail account in the From column.
