hosts.deny blocking incoming emails?

    I modified host.allow and hosts.deny to stop outgoing spamming.
    hosts.allow > ALL: somedomains someip
    hosts.deny > ALL: ALL

    However, it seems to be blocking normal incoming emails as well.
    Now I can send emails out, but I was told others can't send
    emails to me. They got denial messages whey they tried that.

    Are there anything wrong with the hosts.allow and hosts.deny?
    How can I modify the files to allow incoming emails?
    Thanks for your help in advance.
