“Has anyone ever come across an error message complaining about an outdated OST file? Whenever I try to open my OST file, I would be presented with Outdated OST file error. Last night I have configured one more account with OST file and since then, I am getting outdated outlook ost file error message. I hope someone will help me in this regard”

Definitely you will get appropriate solution in this page. You will see the error message only when the Exchange server assumes that the OST file should be more up-to-date than it appears. For instance, you have an OST file and you have synchronized it with the Exchange server. Later, you configured another account in OST file and synchronized it with Exchange server. In case Exchange Server identifies original OST file, it will detect that something is wrong as it has updated previous OST file and hence displays an error message that the OST file is outdated. So, the only way to overcome this problem is deleting OST file and configuring your account once again to it. But as you already know, deletion will remove entire data like emails, notes, tasks, contacts, calendars etc. from OST file. If you think that these items are not so important, then deleting your OST file will be a good idea. However, if you do not wish to lose your data from OST file, then the finest way to get it back is converting OST file to PST by using trustworthy OST to PST file converter tool.
