Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

libsasl2-2 2.1.22.dfsg1-8ubuntu2 is from feisty but postfix 2.2.10-1ubuntu0.1 is from dapper.

Mixing packages from different Ubuntu releases (or Debian) doesn't always work and is not supported.

If you are using dapper use libsasl2 2.1.19.dfsg1-0.1ubuntu2 or if you are using feisty use postfix 2.3.8-2.

Downgrading libsasl2 to 2.1.19.dfsg1-0.1ubuntu2 (the version from Ubuntu 6.06) should fix your dependency problem for postfix.

May I ask you why you try to install a package which is not for the Ubuntu release you use?

Can you help with this problem?
