I hope you still have your backup pst file unmodified as it was before the reinstall. If you still have it I would make an extra copy of it as it probably still has the data on it. It has been years since I was lost pst data through corruption but it was an experience that I will never forget. I have been doing redundant backups of the pst file since.
What type of installation problems caused you to have do the reinstall? Was all your database information, mail, folders, calander and contacts working properly at this time prior to the reinstall? Have you sync'd the data with any other software or programs? Cell phone sync software can be used to overwrite pst data and have been know to corrupt pst files. Are you using a Microsoft Exchange server or interfacing with another mail program either on your PC or online? Microsoft Exchange stores it's data in a ost file. Did you import any data during the install of Outlook? Did you restore you pst file thorough Data File Management? I am not sure if I can help but this is where I would start.
