One of us is confused. If you ssh from B to A then what you do on A is
seen in the terminal window on B. I assume the reason you just don't
copy it from  the terminal window on B into your kmail mail message is
you can't see all of the putput at the same time. Another option is the
script command which will allow everything that happens in the terminal
window be captured in a file called typescript.
