A northern NSW man has been charged and granted bail after allegedly sending threatening emails to a Victorian MP.

Marco Faccio, 53, was arrested at a Nimbin home in December as police investigated the emails, which were believed to have been sent from NSW.

Police at the time seized a computer, tablet and mobile phone.

He was later charged with using a carriage service to send threats to kill and two counts of using a carriage service to menace or harass.

Faccio was released on bail after his arrest and faced Lismore Local Court on Monday, where his bail was continued by magistrate Jeff Linden.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews declined to comment on the case.

"That's a matter before the courts ... and it's not my habit to comment on that which is before the courts," he told reporters in Melbourne.

"Nor do I comment on matters of security."

Faccio will return to court on March 10.
