Retroactive runs when a dormant Flow is turned back on.

I built a workflow to run when an email arrives in a shared mailbox. I turned the workflow off for several days, not expecting it to take action with incoming items in that time. When I turned it back on, it ran for all the items that were sent while it was dormant.


Is this expected behavior? If so, what I can do in the future to ensure it only runs on items when it is active?
