Personally, on my mail client, I can. But I need to make this work for all
the people who subscribe to the list.

If I did it for email I'm sending out, no doubt; But as I said, I need to
Mailman to do that, because posters to the list are not subscribers, and
when someone replies, the other subscribers need to know if someone has
replied or not, and what is his reply. Of course it's as simple as asking
everyone to use "Reply All" , but people tend to forget. :-(
