Greeting someone in the morning with a “Good Morning” is a great way to sound friendly and caring. But knowing whether adn when the phrase is capitalized is challenging.
So, Is Good Morning Capitalized?
Generally, the phrase “good morning” is not capitalized when used in a sentence.
However, the phrase “good morning” is capitalized when used in an email exchange, especially when it is used as a salutation at the beginning of an email. Email salutations (Dear, Hi, Hello, etc.) are capitalized anyways and “good morning” is no exception. The same would apply for “good afternoon.”

In the next sentence, the phrase is used generically in a sentence so it is not capitalized. Finally, in the email, Jack once again uses “good” morning as a salutation so it is capitalized.
