ANSWER #5 of 8

If it's part of their name, then yes you should capitalise it. But if you're just saying "Good afternoon, sir" then it doesn't need to be capitalised. Like I said, unless it's part of their name like Sir Elton John.

ANSWER #6 of 8

This is more of a style than grammar question. In this context "sir" is neither a proper name nor part of a title. It does not need to be capitalized. In my experience when used as a salutation most people capitalize "Sir" even though it isn't required. I can't imagine anyone would be offended either way.

ANSWER #8 of 8

I googled business letters and every one capitalized Sir and/or Madam. I brought up Microsoft Word and when I entered "Dear sir" it suggested "Sir."
