There are two kinds of MUAs. Some invoke reply to the mailing list by
the "reply" and others by the "group reply/all" option. If the MUA
invokes the mailing list reply by the "reply" option, it should provide
a "reply to sender" option, as e.g. Claws Mail and Sylpheed do. The
drawback of this approach is, that if you disabled to receive duplicated
mails by the mailman settings, you need to care about the missing
mailing list headers. If you use an MUA such as Evolution, that does
invoke the mailing list reply by the "group reply/all" option, then
"reply" will send a private message and not send to the list.

I suspect your MUA "User-Agent: Mutt/ (2014-03-12)" can be
set up to your need too. If not, consider to use another MUA.
