Do you have a graphics program on your pc? (e.g. Paint Shop Pro, Irfan View etc) These programmes will operate with your scanner. Save the file as a JPG and attach it to the e-mail.
Paperport is an OCR program (It looks at a picture and tries to identify text). The text can then be imported into a word processing program. Two possibilities are that you copy (and correct) the text from the paperport file into the e-mail, or check whether paperport gives an option to save as a JPG.
