Power Automate Underlying Architecture

Hello I am a little curious about the underlying architecture behind Power Automate. My Flow is triggered when an email arrives in a mailbox. What happens if a hundred emails get sent to that mailbox in let's say a ten minute time frame? Will Power Automate queue them up using something like Azure Message Queue and process them one by one or will the Flow just start failing?

It depends on your flow plans. If it is a free plan then flow tiggers within 5 min ( not sure it is 5 or 8). It will process one by one.
