Can someone please provide Vb.NET code to correctly set the background colour of my option page to match the standard white/light grey? When i look at my option page it is using the standard microsoft Control color.

I could manually change the BackColor to white but if Outlook were to change this in future I would like to match it automatically....

Hi Jimmy,

The problem is that we don't know exactly which color is used as a back color on Outlook option pages. Moreover, I believe different Outlook versions use different colors. So, I would suggest using a color that is closest to the color of Outlook option pages, e.g. ControlLight.
