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???

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.
