Not in the way you state it.  That's under control of the user's mail
program, and inclusion of the list's address is the logical outcome of
a command called "Reply to All".

There is an option in Mailman for "full personalization" of list
traffic.  In that case, the list's address is removed from the visible
headers entirely, and the user's name and address are substituted.

It would help if you explain in more detail what is and is not
desirable.  It is probably possible to achieve a pretty good
approximation to what you want.
