Have a look here for what SASL is.

Maybe try removing the package with
apt-get remove sasl2-bin
and reinstalling with
apt-get install sasl2-bin
Or try a
apt-get --reinstall install sasl2-bin
apt-get -f --reinstall install sasl2-bin
Always mention at least your distribution/version! You can add it in your signature if you don't want to always type it. ;-)

Ubuntu 5.10 with custom kernel (2.6.16-suspend2),
Debian Sarge 3.1 and Etch
