Default Postfix restriction problem

Hi i'm giovanni, i've a mailserver with postfix (relase 2001) and i've added an alias that point to all the mailbox of my domain, so now i've a big problem, this alias is shooted by spammers and i want to restrict the policy and allows to use it only if the sender is logged on my domain. Well, i've find this official tutorial:
smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/access

all@my.domain permit_mynetworks,reject
all@my.hostname permit_mynetworks,reject
so i've applied it to my config. files:

smtpd_recipient_restrictions =

check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/access

/etc/postfix/access: permit_mynetworks,reject
so at the end i've given these command:
postmap /etc/postfix/access
postfix reload

The result isn't good, when any mail client try to send an email the mail client software give a timeout and it's impossible to reach the addressee.
When i clean up the access file and all returns like before...(the clients can send emails and everyone can send email at
maybe with this tutorial i've cancelled part of the default configuration and therefore doesn't it work ?
Thanks a lot
