Aptitude--How to fix broken package

I'm not sure why sendmail-bin is showing up as broken in aptitude or how to fix it?

In aptitude, when I expand sendmail-bin, it depends on (among others)
libsas12 which is "(UNAVAILABLE)".

Source Pakage: sendmail
--\ Depends
--- sendmail-base
--- sendmail-cf
--- libsas12 (>= 2.1.19.dfsg1) (UNAVAILABLE)

If I search at for libsas12, I
Can't find that package, at least no in that suite on that architecture.

My sources.list is:
deb stable main contrib non-free
deb stable/updates
deb stable all

Correction: libsas12 is actually spelled with an the letter 'l', libsasl2.
When I do "apt-cache search libsasl2"
I get back results. In fact, aptitude shows libsasl2 as being installed.
