    When writing a business letter to a woman that uses her maiden name AND her husband’s last name, how do I address the “Dear:” ?

    Ms. Janet Dancy-Reynolds …

    Is it Dear Ms. Reynolds: or

    Dear Ms. Dancy-Reynolds?

    Thanks !

    I would certainly use the whole name. Many women would find only the husband’s name to be a disregarding of her clear choice.
