Issues installing RDCOMClient

Hello.

Ultimately, I am trying to send an email through my corporate outlook account via R 3.6.1. I have tried to install RDCOMClient without success (obviously from searches). I did install RTools and have followed the advise on previous posts but I still am not able to install RDCOMClient.

install.packages("RDCOMClient")
WARNING: Rtools is required to build R packages but is not currently installed. Please download and install the appropriate version of Rtools before proceeding:

https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/Rtools/
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/swh010/Documents/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
package ‘RDCOMClient’ is not available (for R version 3.6.1)

If there is a better way of going about what I am trying to do, I am open to suggestions.

Thank you all for any assistance.
Sean

This suggests you haven't properly installed RTools, or maybe you have installed the wrong version. For your R version (considerably old) you need to install RTools35, you can download it from here
