## Communication
Almost all digital communications available needs some kind of intermediary in the internet to establish connections. This is done using *servers* that are run by organizations called *hosters*. That's why here the tool is even more closely related to the social environment that keps it running than in standalone software. As our organisations are based on communication, and all tools we use for communication influence the way we communicate, the question on how we like to communicate digitally should be thoroughly deliberated.
The internet offers great possibilities for decentralized, federated communication. Some well known companies like to recentralize the net to gather all information about the citizen they can get for gaining profit and power. If we want to keep our data sovereignty we need to cooperate with hosters that stick to the key concepts of networking, that are decentralization, federation and transparency. Transparency is expressed by the strict use of FLOSS and the possibility to have a view inside the servers, to collaborate with the hosters. This is expressed by the *libre* within [librehoster](#lists-of-libre-hosters) and is well comparable to "volunteer" co-work on a CSA.

According to the survey, the only offline client in use seems to be the libre software tool [Thunderbird](https://www.thunderbird.net) from [The Mozilla Foundation](https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/). The only named online mail client is [Roundcube](https://roundcube.net). It is recommended to use [Thunderbird](https://www.thunderbird.net) as client as it is much faster and has some additional features onlineclients can't offer, i.e. archiving functionality.
