We had to delete a users account.  In an Exchange 2010 environment.
We have the OST file.  When we re-created the user we see the new OST file.
What can we do with the old OST file?  Can we somehow attach it to the mailbox of the re-created user?  We don't want to import into Outlook 2010.  We are aware of the ost to pst converters.  HELP???

You should convert OST to PST to attach to outlook.

Yes, there a bulk of OST to PST converstion tools, below is a list of them:

If your data are confidential, it is better to use a third-party tool instead of a third-party service. Or you may sign a NDA with the service provider if you want to use a service.

I am accepting this as the solution even though I stated that I did not want to do the OST to PST thing.  I have done that in the past but it cost me $99 or more. Your link gave me the option to get a file converted that was less than 1 gig in size converted for $10.00 .  While I have paid and am waiting from them to send me a link to FTP the file up, they do the conversion, I am trusting that it will all work out.  Thanks for the tip.
