I don't usually subscribe in digest-mode, but I vaguely recall that
there's a setting to get the digest in the form where each message is
a MIME attachment to the digest message (if that makes sense).  When I
did that then my MUA, mutt, could open each attachment as an email and
I could reply from that view, which resulted in the correct
In-Reply-To and In-Relation-To values.  I'm not a user of KMail myself
so you'll have to experiment with it to see if it behaves the same way
as mutt  ;-)
