Is it correct to send an email with Good Morning or Good morning/Good afternoon or Good Afternoon. I never know if I should capitalize the second word if it is not a proper noun. Also, if you can verify how to write: To Whom it May Concern...Thanks so much for your help!

    Right. Capitalize the first word, then leave the following words in lower case. That goes for both of your questions.

    According to the Purdue OWL, To Whom It May Concern should be capitalized in a business letter, but I have seen it otherwise as well. I'm at work right now, but when I get home I'm going to consult the Gregg Reference manual for a more definitive answer.

    Good call, jagatuba. I googled a bit and found that there seems to be a bit of an argument (http://www.reference.com/motif/Business/to-whom-it-may-concern-capitalization), but I found more sites that agree that the entire phrase should be capitalized.

    Here is a verbatim quote from the Gregg Reference Manual: When you are preparing a letter that may be sent or shown to a number of as yet undetermined individuals, use Dear Sir or Madam (rather than To Whom It May Concern). You may also use the simplified letter style and omit the salutation. Note the capitalization that Gregg's uses for "To Whom It May Concern", however, it is suggested not to use this.
