"Whom" sounds like "him." If you can’t decide if a part of a sentence should use "who" or "whom," turn that part into a question or an answer. If it is possible to answer that question using "him," then you should say "whom" in the actual sentence. Examples: 1. To Whom It May Concern: (Question: does it concern him?) 2. To whom should I give this message? (Answer: you should give it to him) Of course, this also applies when the pronoun in the answer/question is "her," "us" or "them"… but "him" is easier to remember!
