addressee

Here is my best explanation:

'intended recipient' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'notice sees red being replaced' is the wordplay.
'notice' becomes 'ad'.
'being replaced' indicates an anagram.
'sees'+'red'='seesred'
'seesred' anagrammed gives 'dressee'.
'ad'+'dressee'='ADDRESSEE'

'of' acts as a link.
