[R] p-values < 2.2e-16 not reported

how can I get the exact p-value of a statistical test like cor.test() if
the p-value is below the default machine epsilon value of
.Machine$double.eps = 2.220446e-16?
At the moment smaller p-values are reported as "p-value < 2.2e-16".
.Machine$double.eps <- 1E-100 does not solve this issue, although this
value should be used by the format.pval() function.
To know the exact p-values down to 1E-200 is very important since I have
multiple tests which require a alpha error-threshold below 2.2E-16.
Thanks in advance,
