Unless you're expecting something urgent, why not just check it once or twice a week, as you pass the mailbox?

Easiest thing might be to get one of those wireless doorbell units. You can have the opening of the box trigger the bell or have the weight of the mail press down on the button. You can hack it to a magnetic switch or some photoelectric sensor to sense if the box has been opened. There are probably other devices out there to solve this common problem. Good luck.
