Learning to package takes time and will, but if I could learn it, I'm sure
almost anyone can :-)
That being said, kmail is not the place to start packaging.

While I'm perfectly fine if someone earns money for doing Debian stuff, I
don't think this is the place to ask for it. But I may be mistaken in this.
On the other hand, there is something boring but simple that almost anyone can
help with: bug #673268. It needs an enourmous ammount of work, but it's a
quite simple task. I'm planning to go for it on Sunday, starting more or less
at 17:00 GTM. If someone is interested, [s]he can join #debian-kde on
irc.oftc.net to sync efforts.
