Won't they see who was in the "TO:"  (vs BCC)??

Yes, if you place someone in the "TO:" the people in BCC will see that.

But you do not HAVE to put anyone in the "TO:" field.

The TO: field can be left blank and you can put everybody in the BCC

If you have multiple email addresses test it out...just put your email addresses in the BCC field with
an empty TO field
