Aha!  Your reply prodded me to investigate this further.  The problem
seems to be in the way I'm working with the emacs "Message" mode.
Namely, Bcc works fine when I *reply* to a message from notmuch in
emacs: while composing the reply I see the automatically added Bcc
header, and after sending through gmail and getting the new mail via POP
I get the message back. 

However, if I'm using notmuch in emacs and press 'm' to compose a new
message, then the Bcc header is not added automatically and I guess it's
not surprising that the rest doesn't work as expected.

So where is the difference between 'm' and 'r' coming from?  I have
(setq mail-self-blind t)  in my .emacs, and I thought that should take
care of things, but it obviously doesn't.


Best,
Alex
