But don't do it.  Teach your users to use "Reply All" when they want to
talk to everybody and "Reply" when they want to talk to the author of
the particular message.

Mailing list mechanisms that set "Reply-To" to point to the mailing list
inevitably lead to messages that are intended to be private being
accidentally sent to the entire list.
