How do you get your mail?
If you use fetchmail, you can run spamassassin and procmail.

Don't know if kmail has a option for spam filtering.
My sugestion was:
install fetchmail, spamassassin and procmail.
fetchmail will fetch the mail from the server, then procmail will call spamassassin and mark spam mails.

You can find some pointers at

I use bogofilter with kmail, it's a lot faster than spamassassin and easier on ressources. A guide is not needed imho, just install bogofilter and use the kmail assistant to integrate it (extras->anti-spam assistant).
