Sendmail - Dead.Letter not logging

979249 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
I am trying to setup dead.letter - a feature in sendmail which gives notification if a wrong email id is entered.
Currently the problem that i am facing is that i am unable to see dead.letter being created even if i give a wrong email address.
I made below changes in the /etc/mail/sendmail.cf:
Removed hash in front of line O DeadLetterDrop=/var/tmp/dead.letter and restarted the sendmail daemon.

Below is the log from sendmail:
