Not reliably. If you want a simple 'reply' to go to the list, you need
to set reply_goes_to_list to This list so that Mailman will put a
Reply-To: header with the list address in delivered messages. What
'reply-all' will do in this circumstance is MUA dependent. Some MUAs
will reply to the list address which is in both To: and Reply-To: and
the sender address in From:, but others will assume (correctly) that
Reply-To: overrides From: and not include the From: address in 'reply-all'

More importantly, with this configuration, there is no way to reply to
the sender only without editing the recipients when composing the reply.
