That is why you keep the certificate even after it expires.  It will allow you
to decrypt old e-mail, but won't interfere with your "shiny-new" certificate.

Quoting Alejandro Criado-Pérez <alejandro () criadoperez com>:

Thanks a lot for your answer and recommendation. They look pretty neat.
I'll try them out when my actual Verisign IDs expire.

But the main problem is still there. If you receive encrypted email you
can't save it unencrypted so when your digital ID expires and you throw
it away, you will never be able to open your old encrypted email

I used to use Verisign digital IDs too, but since then, I have switched 
to Thawte digital
IDs. The Thawte IDs are free, and they work the same as the Verisign 
IDs.  You may want
to try them out . .. .
