In MS Outlook I can move messages from the inbox to a folder called "All Mail", which has the effect of archiving the message. You may need to subscribe to the All Mail folder in Kmail.

"I do not know whether this functionality was already present in 2009 or not, but the way to do this now is as follows:

Settings > Configure KMail... > Accounts > [select an IMAP account] > Modify > Archive Folder [tab]
Enable; select folder; choose archiving type (‘Unique’ for GMail-like case)
Repeat the above for any IMAP account you want (folder can be different)
Settings > Configure Shortcuts...
Add a shortcut of your choice to ‘Archive’

So there is no need to create filters and a single shortcut suffices."
