I recently installed Nylas Mail v1.4.15 from an RPM file on their Website.

I'm running Fedora 25, Gnome 3.22 and the icon doesn't show up on the Gnome Dash.

Can you explain in more detail what you mean by the icon not showing up? List the steps you are doing and what is happening or not happening.

search the .desktop file for your Nylas starter and make sure there is a valid link to an icon file.

Run xdg-icon-resource forceupdate. The RPM file doesn't register the application icon.
