Best time to submit a job application when given a specific window?

HR filter - if an internet job positing provides a 3 week window in which I can submit an application via e-mail, is there any strategic advantage or disadvantage to applying sooner than later, or vice versa? Also, if I live in a city other than the location in which the job is situated, should I play this down or up? [more inside]

How should I send my job application via email?

I am applying for a job advertised on a company website. The career page says to send resumes to an HR email address (HR@company.com). The page also has the name and email of the HR specialist (JohnDoe@company.com). Should I address my letter to the HR specialist even though I am not emailing him directly? [more inside]
