This question already has an answer here:

In an inter-company (informal) email, when the addressees are one male and one female, I usually use Hi Guys. However, guy has a distinct male flavour.
Could you suggest a more gender-neutral addressing for the above?

    I think most people in the corporate world would consider "guys" to be non-gender specific these days. – Cascabel Apr 26 at 16:08

    I use folks as an informal, gender-neutral term for more than one person. – Davo Apr 26 at 16:42

If it's one specific male and one specific female, just address them by name: "Hi Adam and Betty".

If the context is informal, "hi everyone" or "hi all" would work.

    I feel that all/everyone is for crowds, namely for more than a couple. – boardrider Apr 26 at 17:56
