On the list's General Options under Reply-To: header munging, make sure
that first_strip_reply_to setting is No and reply_goes_to_list setting
is Poster.

What happens depends on the replier's MUA, but for most, 'reply' will
go only to the original poster, and 'reply all' or 'group reply' will
go to the original poster and to the list (assuming the list was not a
Bcc: in the original message).
