No. What you apparently want is for Mailman to insert a Reply-To:
header with both the original From: address and the list address.
There is no configuration setting to do this.

The closest you can come is to set first_strip_reply_to to No and
reply_goes_to_list to This list, but that will only work if the
original post has a Reply-To: with the sender address. With these
settings, if the original post has no Reply-To:, a simple 'reply' will
go only to the list.
