1.      Delete user’s OLD mailbox from server since their name changed
2.      Find local OLD OST on user’s PC
3.      Want to restore OST file as PST to recover old emails into new mailbox
4.      Download ost2.com software
5.     Get "The file cannot be accessed because it has been configured 
        for use with a different mailbox" ERROR
How can I  get the OST to become a PST so it can be read ?

You'll have to set up a mail box that matches the one in the OST, based on the error.

Usage of Scanpst.Exe will help you to reset the data file structure and rebuild the headers of outlook items. Please check out below links :
