since this is a deep down system’s dependency it will most likely fail on normal operations.

try installing exim4, it will fail

# apt-get install exim4

run and abort to see which packages would be uninstalled

# apt-get purge mail*

hard uninstall of sendmail

# dpkg --force-all -r sendmail-cf
# dpkg --force-all -r sendmail-bin
# dpkg --force-all -r sendmail-base

try apt-get -f install or directly, exim4 with all dependencies

# apt-get install exim4 exim4-daemon-light exim4-base exim4-config

see how it works again.
