I need help extracting mails from an OST file, I’ve searched all over the web but couldn’t find anything which helps.
Even tried creating a fresh profile,renaming and replacing the OST but I get the error exclaiming the OST file is not from the same account.

The OST file is just an offline cache of the exchange store..  there should not be any mails in the OST that is not also on the exchange server.

Other than that, there are plenty of tools to do the job.  

Cost $49, but maybe the mails is not worth that?
