It's not being rejected, it's being deferred.

Mar 13 23:28:58 centos-1gb-sfo1-01 postfix/smtpd[22153]: NOQUEUE:
reject: RCPT from unknown[]: 450 4.7.1 Client host
rejected: cannot find your reverse hostname, [];
from=<sale...@tradepro.net> to=<li...@lazygranch.com> proto=ESMTP

A '450' response code is explicitly telling the client to try again later.

If you are using reject_unknown_reverse_client_hostname, it is mostly safe to set unknown_client_reject_code to '550' instead of the default '450' but if you are using reject_unknown_client_hostname (which is unsafe for most sites) you should not.

OR: if you don't get any legitimate mail from Hunan, Chongqing, or Hong Kong you can probably safely block from talking at all to your SMTP port (or just the /13 to limit it to Hunan.)
