I suggest you test to find out which of the three - 
-vcodec copy, -vcodec qtrle, -vcodec png - produces 
the smallest output files.
(But I don't remember if png in mov is always supported 
by QT.)
Note that -vcodec copy will be significantly faster, that 
may also be relevant.

Please consider to set your mailer to text-only.
