Are email greetings capitalized?


In general, greetings are not capitalized in a sentence, but when used as salutations in email greetings they are capitalized.

You do have the option of only capitalizing the first word in the phrase of a salutation, but the choice is ultimately up to you.

For example, when used at the beginning of an email or as a greeting, the following phrases are capitalized:

  • All
  • Dear
  • Evening
  • Good Afternoon
  • Good Day
  • Good Evening
  • Good Morning
  • Good Night
  • Hello
  • Hey
  • Hi
  • Morning
  • To Whom It May Concern
  • Yo
