The cops are not allowed to search your mail if it's in the possession of the postal service. Otherwise, why not just put drugs in an envelope (with postage) and be home free?

They certainly can't take mail from your mailbox without a warrant (since it's legally still under the care of the postal service -- you don't own the space inside your mailbox). However, if they are allowed to search (and they can search a car without a warrant), a stamped envelope is not protected from their search.
