    Perhaps -

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

    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.
