[R] Send Mail R and Socket Connections

Good Afternoon All, 

I am attempting to use the SendMailR function, I have checked with our I.T.
department that I am using the correct server and I have the right
permissions to connect and they have sent emails via this server but not
through R and I have also checked that the port should be 25. 

The code: 


# E-Mail # 


from <- "david at work.com" 
to <- "adam at work.com" 
subject <- "Send Mail R- Test" 
body <- "TESTING TESTING TESTING"                     


I receive the below error: 

function (host = "localhost", port, server = FALSE, blocking = FALSE, 
open = "a+", encoding = getOption("encoding"), timeout =
.Internal(socketConnection(host, port, server, blocking, open, 
encoding, timeout)) 
<bytecode: 0x00000000071beb18>
<environment: namespace:base>

So I figured its an error with or I needed to define a new socket
connection, is this where the problem lies? Could anyone give me any
pointers on where to go next with this to get it working? 

Many Thanks in Advance!
