    Perhaps -

    Do you want me to reply to Emily' email or would you rather do it yourself?

    Re: Is this sentence correct?

    We use prefer not for giving choices but to show that the chance of selection of one is higher than the other.
    Ex: I prefer cricket to football.

    So the correct form is (according to me)
    do you prefer me to reply the email to Emily to yourself ?

    Sorry that's not correct sentence. Also prefer does not imply that one option is stronger than the other when used in a question.
