Is yahoo-email.com a Legitimate Website?

Is yahoo-email.com a Legitimate Website?

Today I received an e-mail from search@yahoo-email.com with the subject "Help Improve Yahoo Axis for a Chance to win $500". The e-mail message states that I was choosen to take part in a survey to help improve Yahoo Axis. I was skeptical at first because I have never received an e-mail message from yahoo-email.com and though it was setup by scammers to carry out their malicious activites.

Please continue reading below.

The E-mail Message

Dear Yahoo! Axis user,

In an effort to continually improve our service and provide you with the best possible Axis experience, we gather information from a select group of users, of which you are one.

Whether you've used Axis once or several times, we'd like to hear what you think of Axis. Please take a moment to share your thoughts about your recent Axis experiences with us.

To show our appreciation for your time and effort, all participants will be placed into a sweepstakes for a $500 check

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.
