    If you send to a contact from Gmail,, that contact and anyone on a list of CCs will see your gmail address if original recipient forwards email. (That's why BCC) You'd have to read through a long header list to find it. A scanner of some sort could find it easily.

    I had a boss that forwarded jokes. We finally convinced him to use BCC. I also haven't seen a chain letter in years.

    That's almost every email service. Not just Gmail.
