Default kdm simply runs startkde. You will have to set your "session" to 
"custom" in the login screen. Then .xsession will be used to set up your 
environment and is responsible for starting startkde in the end to use KDE.

On the plus side, once done, your next login will again use the "custom" 

Of course, one may also use kmailnotify.
