I am looking to create a macro to remove the page colour from an email when replying to it or forwarding it, either automatically on the single click of a button, instead of having to go to the setting on the ribbon, which takes a few clicks. I've looked around, but can't find any solutions. I assume there must be a property that needs switching?

This method (using a simple blank stationery file) will work - Apply Outlook Stationery to Replies and Forwards - (that sample is manual - it can be made to apply automatically when you hit reply or forward, if you want to use it with all messages).

Trying to strip just the background color from a message is a little more difficult, unless it is always the same color - the script needs to look at the source code and replace the color with #FFF - using a method similar to this: How to Change the Font used for Outlook's RSS Feeds - but using regex to grab the entire bgcolor tag. Doing it on inbound mail might be easier than only changing replies and forwards.

Thanks this is very helpful. I don't have a lot of experience with regex, but have begun exploring. However in the sample email I'm looking at, there are a number of bgcolor and background-color tags - any clues as to how to identify which is the important one?
Another thing I've tried based on your first suggestion is to create a small plain white jpg and referencing that in the HTML template. That does the trick, but its a bit of a patch, because I am effectively covering the background color, and adding some weight to the email?
