This is referred to as "reply-to-munging" and yes, you can do that in Mailman.

Go to your list administration general options page and change the 
reply_goes_to_list setting to "List" (it defaults to "Poster").

You can also set the first_strip_reply_to setting to yes if you want 
to remove any existing reply-to headers but I personally do not see 
much point in doing so.

There are a lot of people who argue that the default setting for 
Mailman is the "right" way to do it, personally, I disagree. I'm not 
going to argue this issue because I seem to be very much in the 
minority but I will say this one thing:

If a list is set up as a discussion list, then reply-to munging is 
the easiest way to keep discussion ON the list.
