We report the out-of-plane resistivity of Bi1.79Pb 0.37Sr1.86CuO6+δ single crystals with various doping levels in magnetic fields up to 15 T parallel to the c-axis. By using the low-Tc system sensitive to magnetic fields, two kinds of pseudogaps PG1 and PG2 are found at T1* and T 2* below which the nonmetallic resistivity starts to develop and to be suppressed in magnetic fields with decreasing temperature, respectively. The doping dependence of T2* exhibits a dome-like shape similar to Tc, indicating the close relation between PG2 and the superconductivity, while T1* decreases monotonically with increasing the doping level. Systematic hole-doping reveals that T 1* exists even in the heavily overdoped nonsuperconducting sample, indicating the weak relation between PG1 and the superconductivity.
