    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this: Opened http://www.mydomain.com/sitemap_index.xml

    I expected the plugin to do this: Show the sitemap

    Instead it did this: Error 404

    We came across the forum with few threads regarding this issue, however, non of them have been resolved. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Just wanted to add that Google was able to successfully process the sitemap on Jan 25th (according to Webmaster). Hope you find this helpful with searching for solution.

    I just posted a solution:

    This happens, for what reason ever, if You additionally check the boxes @ Yahoo! & Ask.com pinging.

    Uncheck these boxes, save settings & Your sitemap will be 200!
