The Response from Yahoo! Regarding yahoo-email.com:
We use @yahoo-email.com as one of the main addresses to manage emails that we send to you. We already use @yahoo.com email addresses for our users' personal Yahoo! Mail accounts so we prefer to use a separate address. That way, it is easy for everybody to tell the difference between users' personal emails and email from Yahoo! itself.

The domain name yahoo-email.com is actually owned by Yahoo! and is use for sending out newsletters.
