Rules executing long running macros ?

I am wondering can someone sched some light on rule execution process for me, as I am not sure what happens when several messages triggering same rule arrive ? First message triggers rule execution, macro is running until its completion and all is good, but what about consecutive messages triggering same rule while first one is stil running - are they queued for execution until current macro is completed or Outlook executes them immediately in new thread ?

I have macro that saves incoming attachments to network drive and depending on size of the file and network congestion, it might take up to a 30 seconds to complete.
