It depends what you mean by `when I send off a directory'.  If you're  
referring to creating a tarball of a directory, then a  
straightforward way to do this is at the commandline:

% cd <wherever>
% tar cf dir.tar dir

That creates a tarball containing the directory 'dir'.  The  
environment variable causes tar to avoid including various pseudo- 
files specific to HFS+.

All the best,
