I am unable to access my emails in MS Outlook software in offline mode because offline data files are corrupted. Now how can I recover my emails from corrupted OST file?

The easiest fix is to delete the ost and let Outlook resync it. The emails in the corrupted file are all on the server - so there is nothing you need to recover, you just need to resync it. If, for whatever reason, you need to recover the contents, I have a list of utilities at
Convert an Exchange or IMAP .OST to a .PST - note that there are a lot of shady companies you can find in google, but i recommend the ones in the tools list - I have tested the programs and vetted the vendors.
