possessive connecting word for inanimate object

Once again I'm not sure if I should use possessive or atributive or neither of them.

  1. Please, send me an e-mail with the analysis's output.
  2. Please, send me an e-mail with the analysis output.
  3. Please, send me an e-mail with the output of the analysis.

Which one of them is the most idiomatic?
There is any rule or recommendation about when one must use possessive/attributive or the one mentioned above in example 3.?

I would say, "Please send me an e-mail with the analysis."

The "output" isn't necessary.
