I take care to send sitemaps to Google and Yahoo and now, why not, to Bing, am I missing another one?

Is there other serach engine allowing a control panel to send sitemaps?

Ask.com will use an XML Sitemap, too - you need to use the robots.txt autodiscovery method.

So just adding my sitemap to robots is enough. But HOW in first place Ask.com will find my robots.txt? I mean how do I submit either my robots.txt or sitemap.xml or home page. Couldn't find that info on Ask.

any "well-behaved" robot will request and respect robots.txt before crawling your site.
some bots will check robots.txt before each page request and others will do it once per "session".
