Are we supposed to capitalize each word in the greeting -To Whom It May Concern ? Or is it, To whom it may concern ? Does anyone know FOR SURE?

"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN" MEANS TO "TO THE RESPONSIBLE PERSON WHO HAS THE FINAL DECISION AND WHO HAS THE RIGHT TO READ YOUR LETTER AND MAKE THE DECISION. THANK YOU.
