Yes. If you use the --skip-verify option to GPG, it will do the
decryption step, but not do the verification step.
Note, though, that may not be what you want if the signature over the
data is important to you. In that case, you must either upgrade or
ask the person sending you the message to use a digest algorithm that
you can handle. You can get a list of digests that you can handle by
typing "gpg --version". The "Hash" list is what you can handle.

"Algorithm 8" is SHA-256. Those folks who want a switchover to
SHA-256, pay attention :)
