I would like to recommend OST2PST Set for the accessing of your ost file data to MS Outlook by converting it ost to pst. To know more about ost to pst converter application (OST Open File Tool) visit
OST2PST Converter software for Offline Outlook Storage and download the demo software. OST files serve as valuable backup option for Microsoft Outlook data. However, the job is accomplished only when OST files are converted to readable PST files. Take help of good recovery tools to convert OST file to PST file and let it perform the task proficiently.

What I do transfer of email files?


When Outlook saves items to your computer, it uses a type of data file called an Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst) (Personal Folders file (.pst): Data file that stores your messages and other items on your computer. You can assign a .pst file to be the default delivery location for e-mail messages. You can use a .pst to organize and back up items for safekeeping.). If you are using a Microsoft Exchange Server account, your items are usually delivered to and saved on the mail server. To allow you to work with your messages even when you cannot connect to the mail server, Outlook offers Offline Folders, which are saved in another type of data file called an Offline Folder file (.ost) (Offline Folder file: The file on your hard disk that contains offline folders. The offline folder file has an .ost extension. You can create it automatically when you set up Outlook or when you first make a folder available offline.) on your computer.

The primary distinctions between the two types of Outlook data files are:

The Outlook .ost files are used only when you have an Exchange Server account and choose to work offline or use Cached Exchange Mode.
The Outlook .pst files are used for POP3 (POP3: A common protocol that is used to retrieve e-mail messages from an Internet e-mail server.), IMAP (IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol): Unlike Internet e-mail protocols such as POP3, IMAP creates folders on a server to store/organize messages for retrieval by other computers. You can read message headers only and select which messages to download.), and HTTP accounts. When you want to create archives or back up your Outlook folders and items on your computer, including Exchange Server accounts, you must create and use additional .pst files.

How to restore data from .ost file?


Much easier would be if you first threw the whole folder structure in the archive, and then brought home a pst file, and just connected it as an archive folder on your home computer. But since you didn't do so you have no choice but to extract all the information from .ost file and convert it to pst file, save separately and then imported into Outlook. But without third-party software that doesn't work. I can recommend you to use Recovery Toolbox for Outlook
https://outlook.recoverytoolbox.com/
Also visit this resource and read these recommendations.

The file .ost cannot be accessed because it has been configured for use with a different mailbox


ost files are cached Exchange files. By default, they are stored in the C:\Windows\Users\userid profile folder.How are you trying to access the file? Are you using the same computer you used with the old account?
If so, login with that old username (should be a cached login). Open Outlook and export into pst format whatever you want from the mailbox.
If all else fails, ask your Exchange Administrator to export the information from your "Old" Exchange mailbox.

Or:

Convert ost to pst, outlook 2007


max size of ost file if memory serves correctly is 2gb, you can actually convert ost file to pst file in outlook 2007, it require some effort from your side and will work only if your file is not damaged:

1. open outlook
2. go to "file"
3. "import and export"
4. choose "export to a file"
5. select "personal folder file .pst"
6. tick "ost mailbox" to select all folders and data within
7. select where yo9u want to save your new .pst file (desktop or root directory are best, easy to find)
8. click on "finish" and wait...

usually this is best method to cahnge but it have some drawback, contacts are sometime unfortunately skipped by this method, i bypass this problem by e-mail them to myself and then i have it as an e-mail.

another problem is that if your ost file exceed 2gb or is damaged, you need to use third party software to repair or truncate it, there is no easy way to verify it through any of the ms programs and there is no native utility within outlook or office to help you with... there is several line commands to recovery and divide ost file, but that exceed the scope of this short info

as i was writing this from memory, please forgive for any errors made

more info you will find in this m/s article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287070

i never used this program but it appears to be free:
http://mail2web.com/plugins/addons/outlook/backups-archiving/ost-to-pst-7-free_2642.html

if you download it - do not install any junk which most probably will come with it, let me know if it is worth to play with, if you use it.

if you find this info helpful - do not forget to vote for it...

I accidently deleted, in Outlook, my account


OST files may get corrupted, damaged or inaccessible due to various reasons such as Microsoft Exchange Server's downtime, software crash, accidental user account deletion, database corruption, virus attacks, and so on. The Lepide Exchange Manager's OST to PST Converter tool recovers lost and permanently deleted Emails by maintaining the Email formatting.

Oultook 2007 generate automatically OST instead of PST


An OST file is an Offline file, allowing you to use Outlook even when you can't contact an Exchange server. This will frequently occur when setting up Office 2007 using default settings.

If you are attempting to configure Outlook to manage a non-Exchange POP account follow the instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287532. (see Method 1).
