I'd greatly appreciate anyone's help.
What should I use for addressing to a woman in a coverletter when it does not tell us?
Ms, Mrs or Miss.
Dear madam/ sir could be used if there was no name.
However usually, there is a name e.g., Contact: Amanda Moore
There might have been a post in the past asking similar question. I'm not sure, you can direct me to the older post. There are way too many for me to search. If you don't mind you can explain to me again?
Thank you in advance.

Miss is for unmarried women.
Mrs is for married women.
Ms is for 'unknowns' and any woman who wishes to use it.

Anonymous:what would you use for a widowed woman?
i know divorced is ms, so would it be the same for a widower?
If it does not say which to use, your best option is to use Ms. as this courtesy title is regardless of her marital status.
As a dutch girl, pronunciation is sometimes a bit tricky for me.
Is there a difference between Ms and Miss?? ( does it end in /z/ or /s/?)
