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.

    Actually these are the domain names.e.g,


    means the email address is from UK.


    means the email address is from CANADA.


    means the email address is from INDIA.

    You have gotten what i mean to say.
