Hello,

you should upload sitemap.xml file to your domain root via FTP and then submit it to Google on:

Now you can also  put path to  sitemap in file robotst.txt
for example:
sitemap: somedomain/sitemap.xml

sitemap: http://wwww.somedomain.com/sitemap.xml

Yep, I've done that already too. Several times. Get the same thing each time. Google says "Unsupported file format
Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit." >:(
