Mailing fuel canisters is NOT illegal. see http://www.gottawalk.com/shipping_fuel.htm for instructions for shipping fuels by US mail. Shipping fuel by UPS or FedEx is not worth the effort involved (and may no longer be legal).

Depending on your viewpoint the cost may be prohibitive. We just include the fuel canisters in our re-supply boxes where they will be needed. YMMV

  It's hard to find a reliable source for isobutate canisters along the CDT.  Small towns don't have them.  Mailing them to yourself is illegal/cost-prohibitive.

  Consequently, most hikers on the CDT find that alcohol stoves are a better alternative.  Aside from their other advantages, alcohol fuel is available seemingly everywhere, and is affordable.
