Answerpeople communicated by letters or talking to the person face to face. AnswerThey had mail in the Middle Ages, which was generally provided by monastic orgainizations.

Members of courts who wanted to avoid proof of communication commonly sent messengers who had memorized what to say.

They also had a semaphore system called heliography, which was done by using mirrors to reflect sunlight. There were also primitive semaphore systems used on watchtowers. And they used homing pigeons to carry messages.
