In short: there are many Yahoo email address formats that are legitimate, but were created in the past. However, all new Yahoo emails end with @yahoo.com.

Back then, Yahoo used national TLDs for email addresses (yahoo.co.uk, yahoo.co.in, etc.) depending on the language and location the email address was created from. Luckily, Yahoo discontinued this practice.
