Default How do I address two people in a biz/cover letter?

There are two people listed under the contact information and one e-mail address..how should I begin the e-mail?

Dear Mr. A and Ms. X: ?

Or should I just address one of them? Or is there another way?

You could try: Dear Messrs. A and X

However, messrs. is technically referring to multiple men, not sure if it would work for a man and a woman.

Honestly, do you not know how to freaking use Google? I swear to god 60% of your post say "how do you do this" or "how is this" or something stupid that anyone with an IQ above 10 could research themselves.

Please, don't make me go prove to you that you nef again. Use the search yourself.

Dude you must be really popular in real life. It's a wonder you're at home on a Friday night flaming a stranger over a message board..

Calm down. A google search will give you a one sided reason to do something, whereas here, he can find out form experienced people as to what would be best.

Either one will do fine, depending if you want to correspond with both of them or just one.
Or you can always use bitches/hoes/dudes/homies, which always incite a thoughtful response.
