Looking at the RPMForge spec file for gmime20, it obsoletes any gmime
lower that it's version. You are trying to install gmime20.i386
0:2.2.26-1.el5.rf, which will remove gmime-2.2.10-5.el5.centos.
However, your currently installed gmime-sharp-2.2.10-5.el5.centos
requires gmime-2.2.10-5.el5.centos.  You need to either remove
gmime-sharp-2.2.10-5.el5.centos or find an updated version that will
work with gmime20.i386 0:2.2.26-1.el5.rf.
