"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

What for? just connect to the exchange server and you'll have your mailbox. You don't need OST files.
Assuming , If you are not able to open your outlook profile then close all your outlook session , And rename the existing ost file name ...After that create a new outlook profile & it will create automatically new ost.

Hello Donna,

Just delete the current OST file, close your Outlook and re-start it again. Outlook will download all the emails from Exchange server and then you can access it further. Do not forget to enable cached exchange mode once you download it from server.

Beside it, If it does not help then take help from the given source:
