Why do we have "for" if we don't use it ?

I'm not sure what your question is but it's pretty simple.

The English verb "to look for" is translated as "suchen".

You could always say Ich suche nach der Post. If you wanted to emulate the English way of saying this, you could say Ich schaue nach der Post (schauen=to look~sehen). In the South of German language area, this is a suitable alternative for Ich suche die Post
