It's your first shot at delivering your pitch to a potential recruiter.
Well-crafted cover letters give recruiters a lot of valuable information that a resume can't.
They show very clearly whether you can communicate well in writing, they give you the chance to demonstrate your enthusiasm for the company and the role you're applying to, and they provide a chance to fill-in the spaces in-between the bullet points on your resume with valuable insight into who you are like as a person.
If you know who the recruiting manager is, or you have the name of the manager who holds the ultimate decision-making power or who wields significant influence in the process, then address it to her.
