This in relations to a user interface component in a software.

I am looking for a word to describe a person who is to receive email notifications.

This is a user role, like "manager", "admin", "writer", etc.

  • You could perhaps use "addressees" or "addressees for notification".

The person who receives something (a notification, a letter, a package, etc.) is the recipient.

Example dictionary definition from Oxford Dictionaries:

recipient noun
A person or thing that receives or is awarded something.
‘the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize’

It could be used alone, but in the context you describe it may sound better to use a phrase like "notification recipient".
