Email Message Background Color

Posted on 2014-10-15

Do you know if there is a preference or setting that will keep an email background color as white when replying to an email with a background color  ?

Our marketing emails come with a grey background color and when people reply the background color stays grey.

Any way for the background to be set to a default unless the user changes it ?

Maybe the mail sent can be changed a little? Instead of changing the background of the body-tag or the html-tag, change the background of a wrapped div (assuming you sent mime/html mails).
