No. The mail client sends a copy to the author, mailman can't stop that.
However, if the mail client is mutt, or some similarily enlightened MUA, you
can use list reply to, and if you insert a Mail-Followup-To, you can clue
the client to have reply to all only reply to the list.

You're in luck, I just ported a patch from Ben Gertzfield to mailman cvs
(and it got included, thanks Barry) that does just that.
If you don't want to upgrade to mailman-cvs quite yet (it is definitely
useable although a few smaller functions or buttons sometimes get broken for
a day or two), I think Ben initially wrote his patch for mailman 2.0 (look
in the archives)
