Blocking mails from specific email addresses/domains in postfix


I've a RHEL AS 3 server running postfix mail server.I was trying to block mails form a specific domain/email address through the access file.But it is not working.This is what I've done in the file

smtpd_recipient_restrictions=check_client_access hash:/etc/postfix/access,reject_unauth_destination

Than in the /etc/postfix/access file I've given the entry, REJECT

I access database was rebuilt with the commad " postmap access"

postfix reload

But my aim of blocking mails from the user was not working.

What might have gone wrong?

Your valuable replies are very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
