deleted the ost ,turned off cache and encrption

Goes way if I create a new profile,but would like to not have to readd 6 email boxes in new profile again.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would have easily suggested new profile as that is how we have fixed this.

So, unfortunately, you do need to create a new Outlook Profile.
