What to do about neighbor who looked through our mail?

Last week, my wife and I were out (no cars in the driveway), but my mother-in-law was at home and she saw our next door neighbor looking through our mail as he was walking his dog. I'd like to confront him without ruining our friendship. Any suggestions?

My mother-in-law says when he saw her by the window he put the mail back and kept walking.
We moved into a very friendly neighborhood about 2 years ago. Our neighbor has been very friendly - once giving us tickets to a football game, another time letting us bother his air pump, and overall being very nice. He is retired and stays at home most of the time.
This has really bothered me and I'd like to confront him without antagonizing him. Its more of a superficial friendship as we only talk when we see each other outside, however I'd rather not have problems with our next door neighbor.
How can I go about doing this?
