This may be a drawback of the PGP program. The versions after 2.63 (at
least 5.x and 6.x) did not state the charset used, so all the non-Ascii
characters are transposed when you decrypt on a platform using a
different charset than the encrypting machine.
The only thing you can do about this to decrypt the old emails, filter
them through a script to recode the non-ASCIIs and reencrypt the with gpg.
