Each of those output types can be combined with the option to extract the attachments and add them as additional files to your drag action (so if you drag an email with 2 attachments, 3 files will be presented to your target application).
If you do not want the separate files you can choose to zip them and one zip file that will contain your chosen output and optionally with the attachments is created.
