Tell me where an e-mail comes from when the domain is @yahoo.ca instead of @yahoo.com?

I received this e-mail from someone who gave me the domain of yahoo.ca?? this is some scam right?

    It means the person registered for Yahoo using a Canadian city and postal code. There's no guarantee the person actually lives in Canada, but it's a legitimate domain.

    This a Canadian user sending email through Yahoo! Canada. Check out: http://mail.yahoo.ca

    Actually these are the domain names.e.g,

    @yahoo.co.uk

    means the email address is from UK.

    @yahoo.ca

    means the email address is from CANADA.

    @yahoo.in

    means the email address is from INDIA.

    You have gotten what i mean to say.
