    I wrote my signature with a Sharpie and scanned it to a JPG file to insert into my emails. But the righthand side and bottom of the JPG file appears when I insert it. See attached screenshot.

    I attempted to crop it using both Paint and the Microsoft Office Picture Manager but no luck. I don't think it's a setting on my scanner or all four borders would appear. Any ideas?

    Use the snipping tool to snip the portion of the jpg inside of the border area and save it as a new jpg.

    Hmmm. That's exactly what I did and in fact the shading does not appear in the snipping tool screen. But then when I save the image and insert it into an email, there is it. Is this possibly a setting in Windows Live Mail? For what it's worth, the shading also appears when I open the file using Paint.
