Why when I paste from something I copied in eclipse, does it give it a blue background color?

Only when you paste, or even when you just type new text? If on bothe occassions, it could be that QuickDiff is enabled (have a look at Preferences - General - Editors - Text Editors - Quick Diff).

I disabled Quick Diff (what that is) but when I copy from eclipse and paste into Outlook, it gives my plain text a blue background.

Does it only happen when you paste to Outlook or with other apps as well?

It does it in Microsoft Word, but that's because outlook uses Word.  It does NOT do it in Excel.
It does do it in Wordpad, although with a lighter blue.
I've found that it's a Rich Text format, because I use a clipboard manager called Yankee Clipper.
And I've tried it with Yankee Clipper off as well.

The only way I can provoke this, is by copying text with marked occurences or search results. It seems, that some information on the background color for such matches is passes, although the color does not match the color I set in Eclipse.

So if it only happens for portions of the copied text, check whether it could be the same effect. If it annoys too much, disable some hightlighting features in Eclipse (General - Editors - Text Editors - Annotations) or use Paste Special (or something like that, don't know the exact name in your Word) to insert just plain text instead of RTF (you'll loose all formatting information that way).

It happens when I highlight a portion of a line.
If doesn't happen if I press shift-up arrow to highlight complete lines.
