You can do that, but you'll have to set up your own email receiver if
you don't want to send to an existing server.  Unless you have a
blocking outbound connections, a default install should be able
to send mail with something like:
'mail -s test_message myaddress some_server com < text_file'
If you want to use kmail, set it up with a local mailbox (that
won't get anything) and check the 'use local delivery' box - or you
could put your ISP account there.
