Actually, getting users to use their software the way they are supposed
to, rather than the way they actually do, is pretty much futile; you
need to fix the software so the way people use it is also the right
way to do things.
A better reason for not using Reply-to for the list is that errors
and miscellaneous stuff end up going to everyone on the list, whereas
otherwise they would just go to the sender.
