Hi..these are Linux (Fedora) 101 Questions how to work with RPM's. If you are coming from MS background you can consider RPMs as MSI or Self Installable packages.
Small info if you like to read and learn:


To install an RPM file that you downloaded outside of yum, open up a terminal, and as root or correct user do:”…
rpm -Uvh filename.rpm
So what you do is:
rpm -Uvh libidn-0.5.6-1.x86_64.rpm

rpm -Uvh
You donÂ’t need CURL as its already there unless u want updated version.

libidn and fetchmail are required by Zimbra and you need to install them first before you install Zimbra..
Hope this helped..Search your other problems which you may face in this forum you will get all ansers..people have already gone thru this quite a bit :)
