If you want this, you have to set the list's Non-digest options ->
personalize setting to Full Personalization. If you do not see the
'personalize' settings on the admin Non-digest options page, you need to set


in mm_cfg.py, but if this is a hosted cPanel installation, you probably
can't do that.

No, there is not. Even if you enable Full Personalization, the list
posting address will be put in Cc: to facilitate replying to the list so
Reply-all will always include the list.

If this is an "announce" type list where members shouldn't post to the
list, see <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030685> for how to set that up, but
if it is a list where members are allowed to post, you can't prevent
reply-all going to the list unless you moderate all posts and don't
accept those you don't want on the list.
