[RndTbl] gOOgle/gmail prying eyes

With bcc specifically, the split/sendout to individual bcc targets
(separate e-mails to each) takes place at the SMTP (sending server) end,
with no bcc list shown, and therefore none of the "to", "cc", and other
"bcc" targets get to see the bcc list.

However, you'd still want to be sure that Gmail/Google isn't involved at
the SMTP stage.  Using one's own domain-based "send-from" address
configured into one's Gmail would *not* do the trick.
