Hi, I'd greatly appreciate anyone's help.

What should I use for addressing to a woman in a cover letter 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

Hello Anon.
Please read former pages, you will find the related information.
Damn, I've already used Mrs. while writing to a woman, whose marital status is not known. I hope she is married:)))
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
In addition to the other reply, which was correct, Ms can be used for a woman who has been divorced. Besides that, I agree with the other reply.
Hope this is useful!

The use of style Ms is an informal and spoken way of addressing one who prefers not to be called Mrs. or Miss. In formal correspondence and anything written however, the only two forms that are correct are Mrs. For married women and Miss for unmarried women. For those who feel uncomfortable with style Miss. Madam is the spoken upon greeting and Ma’am subsequently. How ever please note that the use of Ms. Is not to be used in formal correspondence be it spoken or written.

No, no and no. I preserve this post as a warning of how wrong some answers on grammar forums (or anywhere on the internet) can be. Students beware; know the reputability of your sources.
