can we apply the postal law for invitation to treat?
Ex: if someone saw an advertisement like this "rx8 for sale for 10000$. Will be sold to the first person who sends a notice in writing that he wish to buy it for 10000$ To this address.14 park road fox hill."
What will happen if the seller didn't received a letter from a buyer? Is he contractually bound to the buyer because of postal law?

There must be a consideration (money in exchange for goods) for a contract to form. Invitation to treat is only that and is not a contract.
