As others have said, I'm not sure this is a good idea, unless your goal
is to annoy your users and impede communication. But one thing that
would have the side-effect of blocking a reply-to-all is changing the
list settings so that the list only accepts mails if there is exactly
You can do this under Privacy Options -> Recipient Filters
Set "Ceiling on acceptable number of recipients for a posting." to 1
Then anyone hitting reply-to-all will get a message saying that their
message is held because there are too many recipients, since any
reply-to-all will include both the sender address and the list address.
