The viable device was found at a postbox in Clough, Co Down, last night.
A spokesman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said they had received a report of a man seen acting suspiciously at a postbox at Dundrum Road at about 9pm.
He said: "Police investigating the report subsequently sealed off the area and tasked ATO (army technical officers) to the scene.
"Examinations were carried out on a suspicious object found inside the postbox which was later described as being a viable device capable of causing death or serious injury. The device was made safe and taken away for forensic examination."
