Before names of people you're not speaking to. Like this: "El Señor Rodríguez está enfermo." I call this "the gossip case" wink.

Well, that's already one of the answers; plus you don't capitalize señor unless it's the first word of the sentence or it's abbreviated. - NoniB, MAY 6, 2010
It didn't look like one of your answers to me. - MacFadden, MAY 6, 2010

Before days of the week if you are going to say "on".

Example - "el lunes"- "on Monday"..."los lunes" - "on Mondays".
