gmail doesn't care. There are limits of something like 2000 messages per day with 500 recipients per message but the total recipients per day (10,000) is calculated per address, so 10 emails each with 100 bcc is the same as 1000 individual emails.
However with smpt that drops to 99 recipients per message althought the daily total is the the same. So its quite feasible for me to use your queue to send 500 individual messages .
